What Will USC Do Post-Jamie Dixon?

USC is stung by Pitt coach Jamie Dixon’s decision to remain at the school. The university opened talks with him and thought he would return to Southern California.

He is the second candidate this week to get a 10-year extension (the other one was New Mexico’s Steve Alford). Where does that leave USC?

Tim Floyd is viewed as having too much baggage. Syracuse assistant Mike Hopkins is available but would hardly excite fans. Who else? USC’s mentioned some pie-in-the-sky candidates like Brad Stevens (Butler) and Mark Few (Gonzaga).

Virginia coach Tony Bennett would be a strong candidate though I don’t think the athletic dept. is terribly familiar with him. Ditto with VCU’s Shaka Smart.

USC wants someone who will stay there for 10 years. That would seem to favor Hopkins.

    I’m sure Haden can get Digger Phelps.

    Hey Wolf, I really think USC wants someone that can turn things around into some sort of respectability. If he stays 10 years its because he did it and the university pays him because of that. Really a tough one to figure out Wolf.

      Hey white bread, tapette is looking for a ‘squeeze’ and since you ‘luv’ the GLBT fa&&otrice agenda then hook up with tapette – tomorrow strut your back end to de’ woodie shrine and bow to Nellie and all the other moronic idols – still waitin’ fer de’ sam gilbert outift bobble head doll to match vin scully’s

    • TrojanFamily

      Weed labs? You should do your historical research. UCLA has always been much more 420 friendly than USC. USC students are far more likely to abuse prescription drugs and other recreational drugs of wealth rather than the much cheaper marijuana (the choice of the poorer students at the state school). If you are going to troll, at least try to be somewhat accurate with it. Right now you are only trolling at about a 4th grade level. It is superior to Chuckles’ level but that is quite a low bar indeed.

            I see you studied under inspector Clouseau or perhaps it was the original Chucker stalker (J.S.). You probably also assume all of us live near your apartment complex in Alhambra (oops!) BTW…how did you know what i ate for Breakfast? Do you go thru my trash? You read every one of my post’s. Do you have a secret MAN CRUSH on little ol’ me? or…are you just LONELY?
            It’s o.k., you can tell us.

          • TrojanFamily

            I figured since you troll at a second grade level you likely eat at it too. Not too difficult of a guess.

    The line of PROVEN LOSERS wanting that gig @ SCUm is plenty long, don’t worry. You see,…all the applicants know that by landing the job, they will be “bullet proof”. NOTHING WILL HARM THEM. You guy’s ACCEPT LOSING. It’s a way of life…Look at last years basketball team with O’Neil. The team goes 1-17 in Conference and Haden brings him back for another year. Look at the way Haden backs up GOAT BOY, 100% despite all his ineptitude. Your Baseball team has been a JOKE for EVER….and you keep coaches! Losing records mean NOTHING as long as there are no “VERY MINOR” NCAA Violations involved. U-C-L-A just fired their Basketball Coach AFTER HE WON THE CONFERENCE CHAMPIONSHIP! That’s the difference between UCLA and LIMBO U!
    fit on torgans ( but you gotta quit punching women!)
    and…..a big shout out to the Women of Troy!…One of you RAH RAH’S pointed out someone won a diving or swimming Medal (Municipal Swimming Pool or YMCA?)? Are you guys planning a Parade in Downtown? How about we hang another Banner WAY UP High….after you get the keys to the Bldg. back from those folks at “The Kid’s Choice Awards”.
    LIMBO U,…there’s no place like it!

      Wolf pointed it out, Chuckles. Is he a “rah rah?” Seriously, Chuckles, you are trolling at about a 1st grade level anymore. Perhaps you should go back and at least seek your troll GED so you can aspire to troll puberty.

  • Gilligan

    I would like to throw out a major “wild card”, how about former USC great Cheryl Miller? This hiring decision would make major history that would bring a lot of attention to the basketball program. I recall that Reggie Miller has stated in past interviews that she was the better player in his family. What does USC have to lose from hiring Miller? Why not go for something that could become special?

    I wrote this earlier on another post. The hate being directed from some Trojans to other Trojans on this blog is beyond ricockulus! Come on, this is BS! We should all be a united front! Whats happening? Is this animosity because the state of things is so dimal?

    Only one thing will excite the SC fan base, Hire Ben Howland.

    • TrojanFamily

      Is that because Norm Chow wasn’t available? Berkeley’s branch campus has a longer history of signing USC’s retreads than the other way around.

      • lifetime Bruin Fan

        That is a good one, Berkeley’s branch campus, I like it.
