Excellent hire either way.
Allegedly, he also strongly pursued USC but the interview didn't go well because part of that job was personality in terms of being able to mix with boosters etc and Haden didn't think his demeanor/lack of charisma was a good fit in that regard.
Sarkisian is an excellent coach. Boise State has let what appeared to be a very capable coach go before and they didn't miss a beat. I'd rather have Sarkisian than Petersen. Also Steve Sarkisian is the most underrated BYU QB ever - and we're talking about him being in a fraternity that included Jim Mcmahon, Robbie Bosco, Steve Young and the immortal John Beck. Steve Sarkisian is always the better choice when it comes to coaching candidates. It's science.
