Report: Ed Orgeron ‘outraged’ over USC hire, resigns

Cred: Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

On Monday it was announced that Washington coach Steve Sarkisian had accepted the USC Trojans’ head coaching position. According to ESPN’s Brett McMurhpy, that news didn’t sit well with interim coach Ed Orgeron.

Orgeron was reportedly “outraged” that he didn’t receive the job offer, and resigned from his position. Offensive coordinator Clay Helton will likely coach the Trojans for their bowl game.

Orgeron went 6-2 as the Trojans’ head man, but finished off with a humbling, 35-14 loss to cross-town rival UCLA.

While Orgeron was able to turnaround USC’s season, Athletic Director Pat Haden repeatedly stated that he would be making a hire based on the longterm health of the program; not a short-sighted hire based off of this year’s success.

For a coach hoping to land a big-time job, this move by Orgeron could potentially hurt his chances of being hired somewhere else. You have to wonder why he didn’t just stick it out for another month.

*UPDATE* According to Bryan Fischer, Ed Orgeron resigned in order to pursue other head coaching jobs. Orgeron was reportedly one of five coaches interviewed for the position.

*UPDATE* Just after 6:00 p.m. ET on Monday, Coach O sent out the following tweet in support of Trojan Nation.

    He was not “outraged” he was just upset. This is being overstated.
