Former Nebraska secondary coach Marvin Sanders has accepted a similar position with the Trojans, according to the media outlet FootballScoop.

At USC's Junior Day Sunday, head coach Lane Kiffin reportedly announced the hire of Sanders, who was most recently Florida Atlantic's defensive coordinator.

The Trojans have been without a defensive backs coach since the September resignation of Willie Mack Garza. Kiffin left the position open throughout the 2011 season, while graduate assistant Sammy Knight and defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin assumed a dual coaching role.

USC brings in a slew of talented athletes and defensive backs, such as Kevon Seymour and Devian Shelton, in addition to junior college transfer Gerald Bowman and Florida Gators' transfer Josh Shaw. Along with the current secondary, Sanders will have a lot of talent to harness when he arrives.

Sanders has also coached linebackers and defensive ends in his career, and brings nearly two decades of defensive coaching to USC.
