I spoke to a coach who has known Dave Aranda for many years and also worked with him.
I asked if he thought Aranda would take the USC job?
“I don’t know if it will happen but I definitely think he would take it,” the coach said. “I think he wanted to come to USC after the 2015 season but (Clay) Helton never called him.
“It makes a lot of sense for him to come home. But you never know what obstacles are there. What’s his buyout? Will USC pay it? But all things being equal, I think he would be very interested.”
