Ed Orgeron, who led the Trojans to a 6-2 record as interim coach after taking over for Lane Kiffin, reportedly was outraged by USC athletic director Pat Haden’s decision and resigned, according to ESPN’s Brett McMurphy.
Orgeron immediately becomes a hot candidate for several jobs, particularly in the Pac-12. Washington would be at the top of the list. The Huskies could also try to woo UW alum and current UCLA head coach Jim Mora as their pick? Or maybe Mora adds more heat to the UCLA-USC rivalry by hiring Orgeron to his staff at UCLA?
