Steve Sarkisian was out of college football five years ago, having lost a dream job because of his struggles with alcoholism.

Now Sarkisian is a head coach again, landing the job at Texas after helping Alabama win a national championship as offensive coordinator.

On the latest AP Top 25 College Football Podcast, Coach Sark joins the AP’s Ralph Russo to talk about his road back from being fired by Southern California to a stint in the NFL to becoming the latest coach tasked with getting the Longhorns back to being among college football’s elite.

College football writer Richard Johnson of the Split Zone Duo podcast also joins the show to break down what makes Sarkisian's offense so effective and to talk about how the best college teams are trying to emulate NFL teams in how they game plan.

Plus, Urban Meyer's first misstep as an NFL coach and Gus Malzahn lands at UCF.
