LOS ANGELES (AP) — Steve Sarkisian was hired as the coach at Southern California on Monday, leaving Washington to return to the Trojans’ storied football program for a run at national titles.

The 39-year-old Sarkisian is a Los Angeles-area native who went 34-29 in five seasons at Washington, rebuilding a decimated program into a bowl contender.

Sarkisian will be introduced at a news conference Tuesday.
