Wilson to be USC's defensive line coach

USC coach Steve Sarkisian was back on the hunt for a defensive line coach since Bo Davis left the Trojans after just six days on the job. A source tells Scout that Sarkisian has found his coach.

A source confirmed with Scout that USC coach Steve Sarkisian is hiring Georgia defensive line coach Chris Wilson to takeover the same position with the Trojans.

The job became available Monday, when recently hired Bo Davis decided to leave Sarkisian's USC staff for the opening at Alabama.

Wilson, 45, spent the last season coaching in the SEC at Georgia.

Prior to his stint with the Bulldogs, he spent three seasons as Mississippi State's defensive coordinator and defensive line coach.

Wilson has been coaching since 1993. He started as a graduate assistant at Indiana State.

From a recruiting standpoint, Wilson is expected to bring knowledge and relationships from the South to Los Angeles to enable the Trojans to recruit the Southern region once again.
