Ed Oregeron stepped down as interim head coach of USC following the school's decision to hire Steve Sarkisian on Dec. 2.
Orgeron was upset that he wasn't hired for the job.
Sarkisian would like Orgeron to part of USC's coaching staff.
"I am going to pursue Ed here one more time," Sarkisian told the "Trojan Brunch" show on ESPNLA 710. "I thought about him again after the game on the ride home. I think when emotions get settled down, and I know that was an emotional time for Ed and not getting named the head coach when he thought he should have been deservedly so, I would have felt the same way. When the emotions settle down, Ed's a great Trojan and he's meant a lot to the Trojan family and if we can have that opportunity for him to be part of this football program and be here with us, we'd love to have him."
