The USC head-coaching job is one that many NFL coaches have prized over the years. Expect to hear plenty about the school's interest in Rams head coach Jeff Fisher and Broncos defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio in the coming weeks,
However, it would be shocking if Fisher even entertained the thought, given where the Rams stand and the responsibilities he took on there (he is a Southern California guy, but the Rams themselves could end up playing in LA at some point).
Del Rio, the former Jaguars head coach, will be a hot name for many openings if his defense keeps this up, and the school could approach him after the season. It's a job that has held allure for him in the past.
Lane Kiffin could resurface as a consultant for an NFL team, and possibly a position coach on someone's staff in 2014, but he has a lot of money coming to him from USC, and some close to him don't think he will be in a hurry to leave the LA area.
