Southern California coach Kevin O'Neill has decided against retaining assistants Gib Arnold and Phil Johnson, leaving Bob Cantu as the only recruiting assistant from Tim Floyd's staff who is still at the school, a west coast source told on Monday.

An official announcement is expected later this week.

It's unclear how O'Neill will fill the openings, though it's possible Tony Miller could be promoted into one of them. Miller played for O'Neill at Marquette in the 1990s. He is currently USC's strength and conditioning manager.

The Trojans finished 16-14 in O'Neill's first season.

Arnold and Johnson both spent five years at Southern California.
