The USC Trojans have named Graham Harrell as the team’s new Offensive Coordinator. Before his arrival in Los Angeles, California, Harrell spent the last three seasons as the North Texas Mean Green Offensive Coordinator.

The 33-year-old Brownwood, Texas native replaces Kliff Kingsbury as the Trojans Offensive Coordinator. Kingsbury, who was the Trojans Offensive Coordinator for a little more than a month, resigned to do interviews with NFL teams after initially being blocked by Athletic Director Lynn Swann.



The former Texas Tech Red Raiders head coach landed on his feet as the Arizona Cardinals head coach. He’s taking the Air Raid offense that the Trojans had hoped to have to Glendale, Arizona.

The Trojans found another Air Raid offensive mind in Harrell. With Harrell, the Mean Green averaged 34.6 points per game in 2018.

Before being named the Mean Green Offensive Coordinator, the former NFL quarterback served as the Washington State Cougars Outside Wide Receivers Coach in 2014 and 2015. He began his coaching career with the Oklahoma State Cowboys in 2009 as their Quality Control Coach.

In between serving as a Quality Control Coach with the Cowboys, he signed but did not play with the Saskatchewan Roughriders in 2009 in the Canadian Football League. In 2010, he signed with the Green Bay Packers.

He played for the Packers from 2010 through 2012. After being released by the team, he signed on with the New York Jets in 2013. However, he did not play for the team, before going back into coaching.
