Steve Sarkisian is reportedly ready to get back into coaching, but this time on a different stage. ESPN's Adam Schefter said on Twitter that Sarkisian is looking for a job with an NFL team.

It didn't take long for Sarkisian to express interest in coaching again, after being terminated as USC's head coach four games into the 2015 season. After multiple team events in which he showed up intoxicated, Sarkisian was put on leave of absence indefinitely before his eventual firing.

Before serving as head coach of Washington and USC, the former BYU quarterback was a quarterbacks coach for the Oakland Raiders in 2004.
