Reaction to Sarkisian hiring at CIF luncheon

WeAreSC's Blair Angulo gives a breakdown of how many of the recruits in attendance at Monday's CIF-SS-Ford Football Championships Luncheon reacted upon learning that Steve Sarkisian was USC's new head coach.

The USC Trojans once again will dip into the past, as former Washington head coach Steve Sarkisian accepted an offer to take over the same position at USC, according to ESPN's Joe Schad. Sarkisian was an assistant coach with the Trojans from 2001-03, and then again from 2005-08.

Born in Torrance, Calif., and having attended West Torrance High School and El Camino Junior College, Sarkisian is very familiar with Southern California, and he recruited it well for both USC and Washington. Now, coming back home, the thought from coaches and recruits alike is that he will hit the ground running on the recruiting trail.
