Steve Sarkisian files lawsuit against USC for breach of contract


USC fired head coach Steve Sarkisian a little over a month ago after news of his problems with alcohol abuse became public. It looks like Sarkisian, who publicly spoke for the first time since the firing Saturday, is not going to go down without a fight.

ESPN’s Joe Schad reported that Sarkisian has filed a lawsuit against the school, saying that they broke the contract with him due to his “disability.” He says that school didn’t help him with his alcoholism, which he had come to terms with after his outburst at a luncheon in October.

TMZ reported that Sarkisian’s attorney says he has a case due to alcoholism being recognized as a disability in California. They also reported that he is suing the school for more than $30 million.

We’re told one of the main allegations is that Sarkisian believes USC broke the law by firing someone with disabilities. 

We spoke with Sark’s attorney who tells us, “Alcoholism is a recognized disability under California law. So firing somebody because of that disability is against the law.”

The attorney tells us Sark also feels USC left him high and dry when he needed them the most.
