SAN DIEGO -- Jason DesJarlais was chosen Tuesday as interim head football coach at the University of San Diego.

DesJarlais coached the Toreros in Saturday's loss at Valpariso after Kevin DeGarry was fired a day earlier for undisclosed reasons. The Toreros (5-2) have three games left, starting Saturday at home against Marist.

Athletic director Jo-Ann Nester said DesJarlais, in his second year on the staff, takes over "under difficult circumstances."
