The upcoming week for USC is maybe best described by the ESPN headline "No rest for Trojans as No. 3 Utah visits Coliseum." In preparation for the match up, Bleacher Report has all the betting odds and analysis for you, and the LA Times. The LA Times' Gary Klein writes about Utah's head coach Kyle Whittingham, and how he will be focusing on coaching the game, not on trying out for USC's current available position.
Speaking of the ongoing game of who's not interested in being the Trojan's head coach, we've already established that Pete Carroll is definitely not interested in coming back to USC, with Fox Sports and NBC Sports now weighing in. Chip Kelly's name has been bouncing around for a while now, but Bleacher Report takes the time to debunk that specific rumor. St. Louis Ram's head coach Jeff Fisher's name was briefly added to the growing pile, although that rumor was just as quickly refuted as well.
According to the LA Times, USC plans to continue its recruiting efforts, despite the recent chaos and uncertain future of the program. Sports Illustrated also wrote about USC's recruiting woes in the wake of Steve Sarkisian's departure, focusing on the early recruits that have already de-committed.
