I'm sorry Mr. Haden, but James Franklin, Steve Sarkisian, Jack Del Rio, & Chris Pedersen are not the 'big fish' you seek. . Unless you're gonna bring in Nick Saban or Jon Gruden, you should give Coach O a chance since he's got all the chemistry & recruiting skills with the players. Should he find himself an A-list offensive coordinator? Absolutely.
The biggest names don't necessarily guarantee the biggest wins. Pete Carroll was an afterthought when he was hired, went 6-6 in his first season, and lost the Las Vegas Bowl. Let Coach O make a case for himself.
---Thank you TrojansFan for sharing your thoughts on the coaching search. We now ask you folks, who have endured the highs and lows of this entire process, who do you want USC AD Pat Haden to hire?
1. Should he hire Steve Sarkisian from Washington?
2. Do you feel like James Franklin could work with USC?
3. Should the Trojans reach for NFL guys like Jack Del Rio or Jeff Fisher, or has that ship long sailed?
4. Finally, could Pat Haden sign Orgeron to more of a short term deal and wait for the dream hire?
