When Southern California hired Steve Sarkisian interim coach Ed Orgeron resigned from his position, saying it was time for him to go. It seems Sarkisian is hoping he can convince Orgeron to change his mind.

During a radio interview on Sunday, Sarkisian said he's going to try "one more time" to bring Orgeron back to the Trojans.

"I am going to pursue Ed here one more time," said Sarkisian "I thought about him again after the game on the ride home. I think when emotions get settled down, and I know that was an emotional time for Ed and not getting named the head coach when he thought he should have been, deservedly so, I would have felt the same way. When the emotions settle down, Ed's a great Trojan and he's meant a lot to the Trojan family, and if we can have that opportunity for him to be part of this football program and be here with us, we'd love to have him."

And it certainly makes sense for Sarkisian to do so considering that his defensive line coach and recruiting coordinator at Washington, Tosh Lupoi, currently finds himself with some possible NCAA troubles. Orgeron could step right in and fill both of those roles on Sarkisian's USC staff.

Whether or not Orgeron will be interested in the job, it's hard to say. Though it's certainly possible that he's more open to the idea now than he was in early December when he was likely hoping that his success as interim coach at USC would lead to another head coaching job elsewhere.
