A person familiar with the decision tells The Associated Press that Washington's Steve Sarkisian has accepted the Southern California coaching job.
The person spoke Monday on condition of anonymity because no official announcement had been made by either school.
Sarkisian is a former USC assistant under Pete Carroll and has been at Washington for five seasons.
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.
