Fans react on social media to USC hiring Steve Sarkisian: Why not Ed Orgeron?

As news broke that former USC assistant coach Steve Sarkisian would leave his job coaching the Washington Huskies for USC, fans reacted immediately to the move.


  1. Much of the reaction returned to current USC interim coach Ed Orgeron, whom many hoped would get the full-time gig after having some success following Lane Kiffin's dismissal.
  2. Only a fraction of the immediate responses were positive.
  3. Most of the reactions were critical, some coming from Washington after hearing their head coach would be leaving for Pac-12 rival USC. Others just thought it wasn't a big enough name for the Trojans.
