Former USC coach Steve Sarkisian is looking for a new job

Steve Sarkisian was let go from USC after six games in the 2015 season due to a drinking problem that has since left both parties in controversy, as Sarkisian has filed a $30 million lawsuit against the school. On Tuesday, it was reported by ESPN NFL reporter Adam Schefter that Sarkisian was finally looking towards new employment opportunities.

Considering the manner in which Sarkisian was fired from USC, he is likely going to need to rebuild his image before getting another head coaching job. A job as a coordinator or position coach in the NFL would work perfectly in this manner, as it would likely include less stress, and it would give Sarkisian a chance to prove himself again as a capable and responsible mind.

However, it will be interesting to see if anyone is willing to take Sarkisian in. Not only did Sarkisian reportedly show up drunk on the job multiple times at USC, but he is also currently suing his former employer. Those are not exactly enviable attributes on the job market.

Sarkisian has only coached in the NFL once before, serving as the quarterbacks coach in Oakland in the 2004 season.
