The USC Trojans have had offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury for three weeks. Now it could all be falling apart.
A few NFL coaches have been interested in the services of the ex-Texas Tech head coach. That was blocked by athletic director Lynn Swann, who obviously doesn’t want Clay Helton to lose his most important assistant for next season. This appears to have rubbed Kingsbury the wrong way.
Blocked by A.D. Lynn Swann from interviewing for Jets and Cardinals head-coaching jobs, there's a chance USC offensive coordinator Kliff Kingbury will resign so that he can explore NFL opportunities. Story coming at PFT.— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) January 5, 2019
USC is now in a tough position. Letting Kingsbury not interview is a bad look. Letting Kingsbury leave is a bad look. Having to find another offensive coordinator within a month is a bad look. The Trojans already have a head coach on the hot seat in Clay Helton, and Helton losing his biggest catch of the offseason would not be good at all.
The college football coaching carousel keeps on turning. Cal has not yet entered the fray, but we will see what happens.
