Mostly wanted to start this for 2 reasons, see if there was anyone we would realistically look at adding to the staff and see if programs that had disappointing seasons made changes, here is what I have so far;

Wyoming Dave Christensen fired
USC Ed Orgeron resigned
Wake Forrest Jim Grobe resigned
UCLA RB's coach Steve Broussard fired
Iowa St OC Courtney Messingham and RB's Kenith Pope fired
Florida OC Brent Pease and OL Tim Davis fired

Keep updating as changes happen

Not firing, but is anyone else flabbergasted that Sark gets the USC job when his best season at UDubs was 8-4?

They were 0-11 the year before he took over, (5-7 and 4-9 the two years before that), for most of those years he was playing against USC, Oregon, and Stanford every year, and he'll now have access to loads of 4 and 5 star recruits which he didn't have before. So no.

IMO that was based on potential not really on his results.

Sark has been there for 5 seasons. His records: 5-7, 6-6, 7-6, 7-6, 8-4. I guess he was slowly improving, but I'm amazed with all the time the USC AD had to find candidates that he didn't make a bigger splash hire. Maybe he'll do really well there, we'll have to see.

You realize that Sark was there during the Carroll tenure right?

Only his first season. Carroll left after the 2009 season.

USC has had 13 coaches hired since 1950 or something, 11 of them have been on the staff prior. It is a pattern that has not changed. Some are quite upset over the hiring.

Not surprised Peterson took a pass but I was a little surprised they went with Sark. I figured Del Rio or maybe Franklin.

Sark is a really safe hire for USC. I give this hire a B. He was with the program prior and now cut his teeth as the headman at Washington. I was somewhat surprised they did not pull a big major splash hire. Sark is similar to Lane Kiffen minus all the douchebagginess. :lol: He is a good offensive mind, knows SoCal and will pull recruits, good demeanor...he has some good things going.

The most interesting part of this hire to me is that it leaves a vacancy at Washington and in the past Mora Jr. has made it well known he wants to coach at his alum school Washington. Mora Jr. turned the tables on the UCLA vs. USC rivalry and now USC may have just pushed a coach they could not beat and was taking over LA out of UCLA if Washington makes a big run at Mora Jr.

I can't believe that Washington didn't Sark. That is mediocrity at it finest. They aren't even relevant. Why would USC hire him? :)

I think that's the key. Pat Haden is by all accounts completely bought into the "USC Way" and was likely intent on hiring someone with USC ties. So the coaching search in many ways resembled Nebraska's in 2007, where Osborne focused the search on candidates with Nebraska ties. I think that's a pretty asinine way to conduct a search for what amounts to a CEO-level position.

Yeah, that's the word. I'd be shocked if it happened though. Mora is riding the crest of a great turnaround. And the Washington job would pay less (I think--wouldn't it?), be much tougher to recruit to, and just isn't as good a gig as it is to coach in Westwood. Then again, stranger things have happened. :lol:

Just like the story of the grasshopper and the octopus. All year long, the grasshopper kept burying acorns for winter, while the octopus mooched off his girlfriend and watched TV. But then the winter came. And the grasshopper died. And the octopus ate all his acorns. Also he got a race car. Is any of this getting through to you?

Funny how people complain about a guy coming in knowing "XYZ School's way" then when another school hires one of their own it's a "surprise or bad higher"... I think it's smart.. The last "splash or surprise higher" was Kiffin... That hasn't work at OAK, TN, our USC... Sark has proven he is willing to come in and work & Ed O. made the position not look like a lost cause..

If Mora goes to Washington, I think it would be hilarious if UCLA went after Coach O.

Mack Brown will be the hottest name out there if he gets fired. Teams like Oak Lawn Retirement community will be so happy to have him. :hookerhorns

Rumor has it Del Rio was the first choice, but he wouldn't allow an announcement until Denver's season is over. Hayden feared the impact that would have on recruiting and thus took Del Rio out of contention for the job.

Makes sense. This is the same reason I don't think there will be a major coaching change for us this year. Have to do it early, wait to long and you really hurt yourself in the recruiting.
These current two weeks are vital.
