USC COACHING HOT BOARD

USC athletic director Pat Haden announced the firing of Lane Kiffin following the Trojans' 62-41 loss to Arizona State. Now the search is on for USC's next head coach...

Ed Orgeron
Current position: USC interim head coach
Position held: 2010 – present (Recruiting coordinator/defensive line coach)

Current USC recruiting coordinator / defensive line coach Ed Orgeron has been named the interim head coach for the remaining eight games on the Trojans schedule. Orgeron was the head coach at Mississippi from 2005-07. He was fired after the final game of the 2007 season; his record at Ole Miss 10-25 through three seasons.

Orgeron contributed to Scout.com's No. 18 recruiting class in 2013 at USC.

James Franklin
Current position: Vanderbilt head coach
Position held: 2011 – present

Vanderbilt head coach James Franklin is at the top of USC's radar and has been for months, according to a source. Now in his third season at Vandy, Franklin led the Commodores to bowl appearances in his first two seasons at the helm. Heis record at Vanderbilt is currently 18-13, but the Commodores are just 3-2 to start the 2013 season. At age 41, Franklin would bring young energy to USC.

Franklin signed Scout.com's No. 16 recruiting class in 2013.

Steve Sarkisian
Current position: Washington head coach
Position held: 2009 – present

Now in his fourth year as the head coach at Washington, Steve Sarkisian finally has his Huskies rolling. After three straight 7-6 seasons, Washington is off to a 4-0 start and is currently No. 15 in the AP poll. It is foreseeable that Sarkisian, a USC assistant from 2005-08, would want to make the move back to Los Angeles to restore the USC program to the strength it was when he was just an assistant. However a source close the situation says Sarkisian is more interested in the NFL.

Sarkisian signed Scout.com's No. 13 recruiting class in 2013.

Kevin Sumlin
Current position: Texas A&M head coach
Position held: 2012 – present

In his first season as head coach at Texas A&M, Kevin Sumlin knocked off eventual National Champion Alabama in SEC Conference action. He led the Aggies to an 11-2 record in what could have been a tumultuous season for the program in its first year in the Southeastern Conference. Sumlin once again has his Aggies off to a fast start in 2013 with a 4-1 record, their lone loss to Alabama. Sumlin coached freshman Johnny Manziel through his freshman season and on to winning the Heisman Trophy; Manziel was the first freshman to ever do so.

Sumlin signed Scout.com's No. 14 recruiting class in 2013.

Chris Petersen
Current position: Boise State head coach
Position held: 2006 – present
Boise State head coach Chris Petersen has led the Broncos to a 87-10 record through his eight year tenure. They've earned a trip to a bowl game each season as well. But word is that Petersen wants to try his hand on a bigger stage. The Broncos played in the Western Athletic Conference for Petersen's first five seasons and have since moved to the Mountain West Conference. Based on Boise State's sluggish 3-2 start, including a loss to Fresno State, it appears the best days of Bronco football may be behind them, for now. What could Petersen do with a BCS program? He might get the chance to find out after this season.

Petersen signed Scout.com's No. 43 recruiting class in 2013.

Jack Del Rio
Current position: Denver Broncos defensive coordinator
Position held: 2012 – present

Could Denver Broncos defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio return to his alma mater to takeover as head coach? It's most certainly a possibility. Del Rio's is a name often heard around USC when a coaching search is brought up. He's currently in his second season as the defensive coordinator for the Denver Bronces, a team currently in front of the Super Bowl race. Del Rio was reportedly offered the head coaching position in 2010, but turned it down.

Update: Patrick Sullivan, the head tennis coach at Houston University reportedly spotted Del Rio at LAX on Sunday evening.

Jeff Fischer
Current position: St. Louis Rams head coach Position held: 2012 - present

Who better to restore tradition and championship ways to USC than St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fischer, who won a National Championship with USC in 1978. Fisher has spent nearly the last two decades as a head coach in the NFL. He was fired as head coach of the Tennessee Titans after the 2010 season, spent 2011 watching the game, and returned to coaching in St. Louis in 2011.
