Orgeron Reportedly Handed In Letter Of Resignation, Helton Rumored to Coach USC Bowl Game


USC interim head coach Ed Orgeron doesn’t want to stick around for the Steve Sarkisian era according to reports.

Ryan Abraham of USCFootball.com reported on Twitter the news from multiple sources.

However, Fox Sports’ Lindsey Thiry also raised the possibility of a late push to keep Orgeron around.

In light of reports that Washington assistants Tosh Lupoi and Justin Wilcox will be joining Sarkisian in Los Angeles, there may not be room for Orgeron on the new staff.

Whether the reported letter of resignation affects Orgeron’s status as interim coach for the Trojans’ upcoming bowl game is still up in the air. There are however reports from ESPN that Clay Helton could lead USC in the final game because of Orgeron’s early departure.

Suffice it to say, information is fluid and facts can change on a dime. Either way, it looks like the truth in this situation will take time to shake out.
