According to ESPN,
Tennessee’s Lane Kiffin has been named the next head coach at Southern California, athletic director Mike Garrett announced on Tuesday.
Kiffin replaces Pete Carroll, who jumped to the NFL as coach of the Seattle Seahawks.
“We are really excited to welcome Lane Kiffin back to USC,” Garrett said in a statement. “I was able to watch him closely when he was an assistant with us and what I saw was a bright, creative young coach who I thought would make an excellent head coach here if the opportunity ever arose. I’m confident he and his staff will keep USC football performing at the high level that we expect.”
It is also being reported that Kiffin will bring his father, Ed Orgeron, and Norm Chow, in what is being called a “blockbuster deal.” Sorry UCLA. For those claiming USC would not win without Norm Chow, that is now a worry of the past. Norm Chow and Matt Barkley, that will be a formidable team. Yes, Matt Barkley confirmed he is staying at USC. And so is C.J. Gable.
That should also cover recruiting with Orgeron, word is he is already working. As for defense, it does not get better than Monte Kiffin.
