From Joe Schad and his Twitter, looks like he took the job...
But, there are others who are saying that a contract has been delivered, but not signed and sealed... (@InsideUSC gets the tip for that one...)
Sarkisian was the USC QB coach in two stints- 2001-03 and 2005-06- and was Assistant Head Coach and OC from 2007-08.
He does get the culture...
Now, the Silly Season leads itself to U-Dub...and poo-poo's the story earlier this morning on ESPN.com speculating that Vandy's James Franklin and Boise State's Chris Peterson were the USC leaders in the clubhouse.
Anyone calling Chris Petersen...??? Paging Chris Peterson. A call from Seattle on Line 2.
RealDawg247 is reporting that there is a 2PM meeting on the U-Dub campus to tell the team "something..."
Perhaps, that they can get a better head coach than the one that they're letting go...
More when we know more...
Sarkisian's not stopping presses, but USC obviously couldn't do any better. They tried. They got stoned. This is who they are now.

It's not apples-to-apples, but should USC fans be concerned that Lane Kiffin had a better Pac-12 winning pct than his replacement?
