Steve Sarkisian Speaker Profile
Steve Sarkisian Biography
Steve Sarkisian was born March 8, 1974 in Torrance, California and is a college football coach, currently the head coach of the USC. He played quarterback during college and in the CFL, and has worked with quarterbacks during most of his coaching career.
Sarkisian's coaching career began in 2000, when he returned to El Camino Junior College as its quarterbacks coach.
The following season he joined his former coach Norm Chow at USC (Chow was hired as USC's offensive coordinator by new head coach Pete Carroll in 2001). Sarkisian worked as an offensive assistant (2001), then as quarterbacks coach (2002-03).
In 2004, Sarkisian moved to the professional ranks as quarterbacks coach for the Oakland Raiders of the NFL. Oakland compiled more than 4,000 passing yards, ranking 8th (of 32 NFL teams) in the passing offense category.
He returned to USC for the 2005 season, now with the title of assistant head coach (in addition to his duties as quarterbacks coach).
In January 2007, Sarkisian interviewed with the Oakland Raiders for their vacant head coaching position but pulled himself out of the running and decided to stay at USC. Sarkisian was named to replace Lane Kiffin as USC's offensive coordinator when Kiffin took the head coaching job of the Oakland Raiders.
On December 6, 2008, the University of Washington introduced Sarkisian as the school's 23rd head football coach during a press conference on December 8, 2008 in the Don James Center at Husky Stadium. Sarkisian signed a contract that will pay him $1.75 million in 2009, rising to $2.3 million by 2013. At USC, John Morton, the passing coordinator, became the new offensive coordinator.
Upon taking the reigns, Sarkisian quickly reignited an enormous but frustrated UW Football fanbase, and returned the program to national prominence by scoring a monumental 16 - 13 upset victory over his former USC team on September 19, 2009, in what was just his third game as a head coach. The victory earned the Huskies a #24 in the national AP poll; Their first time in the Top 25 in almost 6 years.
