We are reaching silly season and the USC coaching search hasn’t even really heated up yet.
But when Mike Tomlin and Jeff Fisher get mentioned, it’s obviously fair game to throw any names out there.
So let me repeat what I’ve heard from my sources:
Serious candidates right now are Mario Cristobal, Luke Fickell, Matt Campbell, James Franklin and Dave Aranda.
It’s still October so other candidates could be considered. But the names above are coaches USC thinks it has a chance to land.
