The University of Southern California made a bit of a surprise hire when they tabbed former Washington head coach Steve Sarkisian to take over as head coach of the Trojans football squad. Immediately, USC faithful and pundits alike began to buzz that Sarkisian was not the right choice for the program, despite having previously worked as an offensive coach at the school under Pete Caroll. Unfortunately, it looks like it's going to be a long ride for the coach, and along for all of it will be Steve Sarkisian's wife Stephanie Sarkisian.

Fortunately for Coach Sark, his wife has been through the roller coasters provided by a football life. The couple has been together since college, and were married after graduating in 1997. The couple took vows on your average summer weekend,... except that Steve was headed off to Saskatchewan that week for his brief stint as a quarterback in the CFL. Stephanie joked to the Seattle Times that Steve's rookie season was nothing more than a lovely five month honeymoon in Regina, Canada.

After hanging up the spikes, the coaching carousel began. Steve began as the quarterbacks coach at El Camino College before three seasons at USC. He went to the NFL for one season as the Raiders QB coach before coming back to USC in 2005. Finally in 2008, Sarkisian took a head coaching gig at the University of Washington.

The family has been along for the ride. The 39 year old Steve and his wife Stephanie have three children: two daughters Ashley and Taylor and a son, Brady. As a quarterbacks coach from southern California, I wonder who the inspiration for his son's name was....

    Hello Stephanie, I want to first say congratulations to your family on joining the USC family. I am reaching out to you as a mother. My son was being recruited by Coach O before the change and now nobody is answering my emails. My son has worked hard since a young boy. I know every mother praises their child but my son will do things sometimes to even make me say wow. Not only is he a wonderful athlete but he is good kid. He has never been in trouble never done drugs and made it a point to stand up for kids that others are curl to. His dream since he was 7 years old was to go and play for USC. I am Armenian and was raised in Southern Ca. My husband wanted my son to apply to Washington because he said that your husband was the man to give credit to for all of USC's victory in the past when Carol was coach. I am very happy that he is back but very unsure now of my son further because he is unknown to your husband. I would appreciated any help in passing along my sons informations that you maybe able to provide. Please send me an email and I can send you his film. If I don't hear from you I understand and wish you and your family the very best. I know this is a long shoot I am just trying everything I can think of.
    Thank you,
    Anna Kazarian
