USC is coming off a devastating loss to Washington on Thursday and today, it looks like there could be more trouble on the horizon for the Trojans.

Head Coach Steve Sarkisian was not at practice this morning. According to Bryan Fischer of Bleacher Report, Sarkisian was sent home by athletic director Pat Haden.

In addition to that, Lindsey Thiry from the Los Angeles Times is reporting that Haden has also asked Sarkisian to take a leave of absence. Clay Helton is reportedly going to be the interim head coach.

No reason has been given yet for Sarkisian’s leave of absence.
