Hirings official

A quick note that the press conference has concluded and Steve Sarkisian not only announced the three hirings discussed in the previous post but that of Ivan Lewis as strength and conditioning coach and Charr Gahagan, who had been an assistant at USC, as an assistant.
So sounds as if the strength staff is set.
Also, he said he is leaving tomorrow morning on his recruiting trip and not tonight, as the Honolulu paper suggested. He will be out of the office from tomorrow until Jan. 2 on recruiting, and then working with USC through the Rose Bowl.
Sarkisian said there were a couple of people in the mix for the defensive coordinator job but did not mention them. He said he was disappointed that Rocky Seto turned the job down but that he understood, saying USC is a tough place to leave right now.
I’ll have more quotes and notes later.
