Steve Sarkisian believed to be drunk at Arizona State game

In what is surely the biggest development of today, USC head coach Steve Sarkisian has been sent on a mandatory leave of absence after he appeared to have not been sober at practices on Sunday. There has just been more to break from this story and it is certainly turning out to be a sloppy situation.

USC Insider reported via Twitter that Sarkisian was pulled from a player huddle on the sidelines at the Arizona State game last Saturday. The account said that Sarkisian appeared to not be sober.
