According to ESPN,
Tennessee’s Lane Kiffin has been named the next head coach at Southern California, athletic director Mike Garrett announced on Tuesday.
“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.

Weis later claimed his comments were meant to be general statements about false Internet rumors and their impact on coaches’ lives.
These are the statements that Weis make about Coach Carroll,
“Let me ask you this question: You guys know about things that go on in different places. Was I living with a grad student in Malibu, or was I living with my wife in my house? You could bet that if I were living with a grad student here in South Bend, it would be national news.
“He’s doing it in Malibu and it’s not national news. What’s the difference? I don’t understand. Why is it OK for one guy to do things like that, but for me, I’m scrutinized when I swear. I’m sorry for swearing; absolve my sins.”
As we enter Thursday practice before the USC v. Washington game, the decision about who will start at quarterback for the Trojans becomes a little more clear. As previously predicted on Dreadnaught, it will be Aaron Corp. (Note: Michael Lev at USC BLOG has also made the same prediction, so I am in good company). Matt Barkley has missed his third consecutive practice, after it did not go well when he tried to throw before practice. This stems from the bruised shoulder he suffered in the victory over Ohio State. Coach Pete Carroll is expected to make the QB decision on Thursday morning. Corp was asked earlier if he was ready to play, here is his answer,
“I’m ready. I was ready last week. I was ready two weeks ago. I’ll be ready if they need me.”
We shall see who makes the start in Seattle.
While on the topic of USC quarterbacks, it appears one QB may start at another position. The starting punter position is open, and it looks like Mitch Mustain may be just the man for the job. Best of luck to Mustain, he is a stud for coming to the Trojans with so much hype and being willing to do whatever it take to help the team.

This Saturday the Trojans face Washington. The question remains who will start for USC at quarterback? To answer this question one must look back at the quarterback competition at SC. Coming out of spring practice Aaron Corp was named the starter by Coach Pete Carroll. Corp then cracks his left fibula and Matt Barkley is named as the starting QB. Barkley then starts against San Jose St. and stuns everyone in the come-from-behind victory over Ohio State.
