    College Football Coaching Carousel 2013

    USC just hired Steve Sarkisian to replace Lane Killin. Looks like they're going to stay within the Pete Carroll family tree. Pretty underwhelming hire IMO.

    Most hires are underwhelming nowadays. There wasn't a home run out there. Bill Cowher wasn't going to leave his cushy broadcasters chair. My guess is most of the country thought Auburn's hire of Gus Malzahn was underwhelming at the time

    Neither was Jon Gruden.

    I think he's done a good job at U Dub and is a good choice for USC

    Orgeron needs to strike while the skillets hot. He might have to take the Florida Atlantic job to prove Ole Miss was a fluke.

    Grobe turned down higher profile jobs but after 10 years I guess it got old.

    Coach O is the definition of "not ready for prime time."

    Anyone who follows the SEC knows that Malzahn ran that team, not Gene Chizik.

    As for Sark, he's Lane Kiffin without the drama. I was expecting a departure from the Pete Carroll era, but I don't think there was really a big name out there.

    If Ed Orgeron doesn't end up with a head coaching job, I wouldn't mind UK hiring him as an associate head coach to Stoops. Orgeron has the experience recruiting and coaching in the SEC and would be valuable, even if he was only in Lexington for a year or two.

    I think Sark is a very good choice. He's done a wonderful job at UW. I think USC will be pleased with him

    Sark may do well, but is a meh hire for USC.

    With Florida, USC and Texas (most likely) having jobs filled for next season expect the floodgates to open at the next level of programs that would have had to compete with those plum jobs. Nebraska I am talking about you...

    USC hires a coach, under contract, from its league: http://es.pn/19dusJ9 No tampering, no sitting out a year...that's only for the players

    I'm sure USC got permission from UW to interview him. If not then he's got quite a scoop. Otherwise, there's nothing to see here

    That wasn't really the point...

    It's either tampering or it's not
