    I wonder how well Franklin would handle a job in that kind of market. He doesn't seem to deal well with negativity, and SC seems like a place with a lot of it when things don't go well.

    Few things he would get really mad about
    1) his program secrecy schtick wouldn’t fly there (he has everything closed doors for practices, etc and provides media no info)
    2) he can’t handle negativity
    3) he would get mad at any lack of fan support

    USC being relevant would be fun. Helton was just an anchor. You knew they’d never compete for a playoff with him as coach

    Their fan base doesn't always show up to games. That doesn't mean they don't care or don't have really high expectations.

    Not because the fan base wanted him, and the main reason is likely that Kiffin last 3.5 years, and Sark 1.5 years before him.

    Hearing USC has lots of interest in the hottest up-and-coming DC in the game. Would hate to lose him, but he'd be a fool not to take the job!

    Make Cristobal say no because in conference hires make football very fun.

    Probably hire fickell though which I would appreciate.

    USC owes hundreds of millions of dollars in sexual assault settlements. Part of the reason they’ve been holding onto Helton is because their financials are in ruins.

    Kiffin would be better content but he's hopefully not being considered this time around, so in lieu of that I'd be good with either of these guys from a competitive and meme standpoint

    they at least need to kick tires on seeing if Chris Peterson is interested in the job. They fucked up not hiring him eight years ago when he was willing to leave Boise.

    Fickell is going to leverage this job for a lucrative extension at Cincinnati. I don’t see Fickell playing well in LA.

    Urban Meyer would have been perfect for this job, and still might be.

    The dark horse is Hafley. He recruited Cal really well at OSU, but Chip Kelly at UCLA is a mentor.

    If the Cincinnati job comes open, Kerry Coombs actually would be perfect for it.

    He is a terrible coordinator, but he’ll recruit well and provide stability there because he isn’t looking at the job as a stepping stone to another job.

    Who cares if Coombs would look to leave or not? He's 60 years old. Is there really much difference between hiring him or a guy who might leave in 3-4 years if things go well

    not directing this at you specifically and I understand and acknowledge it’s a different sport. But, those saying Fickell won’t make it as sc are making the same arguments that were made for saying Cronin would suck at UCLA.

    if you are going for an outside the football building hire don’t see the point in firing this early in the season , recruits will be in limbo regardless and the new staff can’t show up till December anyway
