There has been no timetable as to when a replacement will be hired, but it’s likely safe to assume USC already has a shortlist of candidates in mind. The big hope for fans of the program is that the next AD will be able to turn around a former powerhouse, and bring the Trojans back to their glory days on the gridiron.
