I think it’s Luke Fickell or /ducks Lane Kiffin. But they’ll let the in-house interim team try it this year

I know Fickell and the AD have a relationship, but sure seems like you would want someone who was a known entity out west. I think Peterson is the first guy you call.

Dumping Jacksonville in September of your first season would by far trump any of the other "big time college guy goes to the pros" failures/abandonment.

USC agrees to pay $852 million in latest settlement involving gynecologist accused of abuse


The University of Southern California has agreed to an $852 million settlement to resolve lawsuits from hundreds of women alleging that the university failed to respond adequately to complaints that a gynecologist sexually abused patients at its student health center, according to terms disclosed Thursday.

USC and attorneys for the plaintiffs made the terms public after a hearing in Los Angeles County Superior Court. The magnitude of the settlement — about one-seventh the size of the $5.9 billion endowment USC reported in 2020 — made it a landmark case for higher education.
Previously, the university had also agreed to pay more than $200 million in a 2018 federal class-action settlement involving women who were patients of former USC gynecologist George Tyndall. Counting Thursday’s developments, USC’s total bill for legal settlements now exceeds $1 billion.

As long as he puts out good teams at BC, his name will always be mentioned. Simply the nature of that job.
Calling BC good is a stretch but they are def outperforming what you would expect from a team in the Northeast.

If I were going to put money on a longshot, I would put money on Jon Gruden. I could see Mark Davis looking for some type of "mutually agreed exit" for Gruden to move on from the Raiders without having to eat that ridiculous contract. They've got the stadium now, they don't need Gruden to attract the fans. USC wanted Gruden in 2013 but they couldn't make it work.
