Round one of the USC head coaching search bracket

Who do the USC football fans want as their next head coach? We created a bracket to find out.

The Trojans close out the regular season against UCLA Saturday in the Coliseum. The winner not only gets bragging rights, but also advances to the Pac-12 Championship Game against Stanford.

Even with such an important contest looming, USC fans are still hotly debating who the next head coach should be.  Every day we get countless posts, emails and Tweets with coaching suggestions and ideas. Some are very reasonable, and some are simply horrendous.

To help narrow things down we decided to create a USC coaching search bracket, March Madness style.  Here is the full bracket, with 32 potential head coaches seeded 1 through 32.

Here is a more zoomed in version of round one (updated with results).

We are doing the voting for each round using Twitter Polls and here are the round one results.

Stay tuned for the round two matchups!
