Presenting the War Room - USC coaching search rumors

This week in our Black Friday edition of the War Room we discuss the latest rumors on the USC coaching search.

More details of what is inside:

  • The rumor mill has kicked up a notch this week as Trojan fans wonder and worry who will lead this program going forward.
  • In a bit of a different take on the search, an interesting way in which interim head coach Clay Helton could be involved going forward.
  • Traditionally the USC/UCLA game is a huge recruiting weekend for official visitors, but this year plans have changed.
  • This year the cross-town showdown means more with the Pac-12 South title on the line, but are the fans as excited for this one as they should be?
  • The USC basketball team has been impressive so far and when you stop to think about it, that could have an impact on the football coaching search.
  • Plus plenty more!
