Uscfootball.com’s Austin Nivison provides a list of ten candidates who fired Clay Helton. Two on the list peek my interest for two different reasons. The first one has a prior relationship with USCs AD Mike Bohn. He hired Luke Fickell as Cincinnati head coach in 2107. Fickell is reported to be one of the ten candidates to replace Helton. The question is would he accept the USC’s job since he is a midwestern guy.
The other candidate I am very familiar with because he coaches at Rutgers University in my home state of New Jersey. He is Greg Shiano. He is very popular among the Rutgers’ fans, which is why this is his second time here as head coach. He has been successful here which is his appeal.
