It is unfortunate when 'CESM folks' do not respond.

The official weight files are at the site below. All are bilinear and
none do what you want.

Have you looked at the CDO (Climate Data Operators) from Max Planck?
The following is a possible approach:
POP files have scalar and vector quantities.
The CDO documentation states that it will look at the 1st variable
encountered and use the latitude and longitude coordinates
associated with that variable for the entire file.
So ... how to proceed? One approach follows:
[1] Pick a scalar variable (say SALT) which uses TLAT and TLONG as 
     Pick the one you want to plot or remap. Create an array with just 
necessary variables.
%> ncrcat -v SALT,TLAT,TLONG
[2] Generate the weights. Here bilinear but you can generate 
conservative weights also.
%> cdo genbil,r3600x2400 &
[3] Apply the weights and generate a new grid:
%> cdo remap,r3600x2400, \
[1] Pick a vector pair quantity (say UVEL, VVEL). Must perform
     the rotation using ANGLE ... somehow.
[2] Generate weights for the  the vector components and ANGLE ???
     The following is for a 1x1 grid
%> cdo genbil,r360x180 &
[3] Remap
cdo remap,r360x180, \

Somehow how the rotation must be applied
Finally, the next release of NCL [ 6.1.0] will include
the ESMF remap capabilities. There will be many examples.
ESMF is superior to SCRIP.
Can you please send us an example of the SODA model?
cd incoming
put ....
