Ed Orgeron will serve as interim head coach for USC after Lane Kiffin was fired Sunday following the Trojans' 62-41 loss to Arizona State Saturday night.
Orgeron, the former Ole Miss head coach, was serving as the recruiting coordinator and defensive line coach for USC. In three years at Ole Miss, Orgeron was 10-25.
After being fired from Ole Miss, Orgeron joined Kiffin's staff at Tennessee and went with him to USC.
Athletic director Pat Haden talked about the decision to remove Kiffin from his duties and said that he hadn't gotten any complaints from players or coaches about the fourth-year head coach at USC. He wouldn't talk about possible candidates for the position, except to say that everyone in the room was a candidate. Presumably, everyone in the world is also a candidate. We have a chance, you guys.
