USC Picture Of The Day

UCLA coach Billy Barnes and USC coach Don Clark shake hands after the 1958 Crosstown Rivalry, which ended in a 15-15 tie. Note the lack of a mob scene on the field after the game. No media horde. No big display of security. Just a few photographers. And of course, note the big white clock that was atop the Coliseum scoreboard. Photo courtesy USC digital library.

USC Morning Buzz: Could Ed Orgeron Ever Return?

Ed Orgeron, Silas Redd

Let’s take a moment to consider USC’s history of hiring head coaches.

Don Clark (1957) was a USC assistant. John McKay (1960) was a USC assistant . John Robinson (1976) was a former USC assistant. Ted Tollner (1983) was a USC assistant. Larry Smith (1987) was a fellow Pac-10 coach at Arizona. Robinson (1994) again. Paul Hackett (1998) a former USC assistant. Pete Carroll (2001) an out of work former NFL coach. Lane Kiffin (2010) a former USC assistant. Steve Sarkisian (2014) a former USC assistant.

So that seems to suggest Ed Orgeron could be a strong candidate the next time USC hires a coach. But would he be considered if he were a position coach at LSU? Does he need to be a head coach somewhere else first? Will he be a hired somewhere else? There didn’t seem to be much buzz for him getting offered a head-coaching job other than some talk about Kansas being interested.

Notable Swim Meet

No. 3 Cal defeated the No. 14-ranked USC women’s swim team today, 197.5-102.5. But the meet was notable because the Pac-12 Network telecast featured the return of analyst and former Olympian, Amy Van Dyken, since she was involved in a life-threatening ATV accident in June.
Here’s the feature that opened the telecast of today’s meet on Van Dyken.

USC Morning Buzz: An Offensive Line Coach Update

I continue to hear UCLA offensive line coach Adrian Klemm is a candidate for the USC offensive line coaching position. Steve Sarkisian strongly pursued Klemm last year before he got a new contract at UCLA.

Whether or not Klemm would take the job remains to be seen but he is clearly someone Sarkisian finds to be a strong coaching candidate.
