On Thursday at 11:03 a.m. PT, Scott Schrader of TrojanInsider reported that according to a source close to the USC football program, former Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury was set to be hired as the new offensive coordinator for the Trojans.

Since then, reports elsewhere have confirmed Schrader’s original report.

However, Bruce Feldman of the Athletic later countered those reports, stating that no decision had been made my Kingsbury. 

TrojanInsider reported earlier this week that Kingsbury was the lead candidate to fill the vacated position within our coaching hot board.

Head coach Clay Helton, the only coach remaining on staff who has been a significant offensive influence at USC connected is the remaining connection by the Pete Carroll, Steve Sarkisian and Lane Kiffin, looks to be heading in a new direction. We expect USC to wipe the slate clean with its previous offensive philosophies and start with a fresh system. Kingsbury would provide that and also be a huge draw for recruits.

In fact, the father of one five-star prospect had a very positive statement about the potential hiring.

There have been several reports that former Texas Tech Head coach Kliff Klingbury has been on the USC campus, even a report USC is in the driver’s seat to hire him.
