Fired USC coach Steve Sarkisian spent big on alcohol

Fired USC coach Steve Sarkisian spent big on alcohol while at Washington, documents show 

The Los Angeles Times reported that Sarkisian and three assistants ordered four shots of Patron Silver, four shots of an unspecified liquor and five beers before Sarkisian cashed out at 11:53 a.m. during a stop in Nashville in January 2013.

The L.A. Times also obtained over 800 pages of receipts and expense reports from Sarkesian’s time at Washington, which were loaded with alcohol purchases. In June of 2011 he paid a $722.52 bill — which included 83 beers and 12 shots of vodka — at 10:16 a.m. at a Washington golf resort; he rang up a $1,600 tab over two days at a hotel’s poolside bar in 2013; and he ordered 91 shots of tequila during two visits to a restaurant, racking up a $1,023 bill.

The Los Angeles Daily News also noted that sources that include a USC assistant coach, said they believe Sarkisian was drunk during USC's 42-14 victory over Arizona State on Sept. 26.

C. C. Sabathia to Enter Alcohol Rehab and Miss Yankees’ Playoffs

C. C. Sabathia, a commanding presence and a key leader for the Yankees, if no longer a franchise star, left the team and said Monday that he was entering an alcohol treatment program.

Although Sabathia was not expected to pitch Tuesday night in the wild-card game against the Houston Astros — the Yankees’ first playoff game since 2012 — the announcement left the Yankees stunned. Many members of the team threw their support behind Sabathia.

“All that matters now is what’s happening now, which is obviously he’s going to get the help necessary in a structured environment,” General Manager Brian Cashman said in a news conference at Yankee Stadium, just before the team worked out. “He’s going to get professional help. That’s the most important thing right now.”
