REPORT: USC offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury may resign


NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-Second Round-Texas Tech vs. Florida Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

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.

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.
