One Coaching Rumor To Think About

I have not seen this anywhere.  Rumors have to start somewhere, and this rumor will start at the Grit Tree. 

As the coaching carousel begins, I think one former SEC Coach might end up out west. 

Look for Bobby Petrino to head to USC. 

Think about it…the Pac 12 would be the perfect fit for Petrino.  One, he is an offensive guru who doesn’t believe in playing good defense.  Lane Kiffin has USC poised for a 5 loss season, and will be faced with the prospect of firing his daddy.  And, his daddy is the only reaosn he has been such a hot commodity in the first place. 

Also, the Pac 12 is where Coaches with baggage end up.  Rich Rodriguez.  Jim Mora, Jr.  Lane Kiffin.  Mike Leach.  Todd Graham.   A sleezy, snake in the grass like Petrino would be a perfect fit out there. 

Petrino has burned too many bridges in the southeast.  A return to the NFL, after he left the Falcons in that manner, is unlikely. 

Southern Cal would be the perfect fit.

    I agree with your basic premise and it’s defiantly a good rumor to start as rumors go, but I don’t think Pat Haden would ever hire Bobby due to his checkered past. I think Lame gets another year minus his daddy only to get beaten again by Jim Mora at the end of another rocky season.

    Yeah. I watched the whole UCLA/USC game and I have to admit it was the best of that series in a long time. The only down side about watching it was every time the cameras panned over to each of the coaches. It made me feel like I was watching the Sleeze Ball Bowl. I wonder sometimes how these guys ever get hired when the analyst in the booth knows more about football than they do.
