Steve Sarkisian was named the head coach at Southern California on Monday, leaving Washington to return to the Trojans' storied football program for another run at national titles.
He'll be the permanent replacement for Lane Kiffin, who was fired earlier in the season and replaced on an interim basis by Ed Orgeron. The Trojans went 6-2 under Orgeron.
Tara VanDerveer has never concerned herself with coaching milestones, always focusing on the next game.
Miami Dolphins tackle Jonathan Martin will likely be interviewed a second time by NFL special investigator Ted Wells about the team's bullying scandal, a person familiar with the situation said Sunday.
