The Southern California head coaching job is presently the biggest head coaching vacancy in college football.
Ed Orgeren is presently the team’s interim head coach until USC Athletic Director Pat Haden names a permanent head coach. And last night, USC had their biggest win of the season after struggling out of the gates and Lane Kiffin being fired after the Arizona State loss.
Less than 24 hours after the upsetting of No. 4 Stanford with a 20-17 win at the Coliseum, word has come out that Denver Broncos interim head coach Jack Del Rio interviewed for the position.
Haden was given permission to interview the former USC alumni during the Broncos bye week. The interview actually happened on November 1st.
USC has had Del Rio as one of the favorites for the permanent position since Kiffin was fired. Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin is reportedly the favorite for the position, but he has not interviewed for the position, as of yet.
Del Rio was interviewed the day before Broncos head coach John Fox had to be rushed to a hospital in Charlotte, North Carolina for a heart problem after playing golf. Fox is still out after having the surgery.
And Del Rio debuted last Sunday as the Broncos head coach, and won his first game as interim head coach. Tonight, Del Rio will guide the Broncos at home against the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs.
