High profile program - check
Prime recruiting country - check
Plenty of money for staff - check
Plenty of money/opportunities for NIL - check. Plus chance for players to associate with Hollywood crowd

If Elko wants to be a head coach, I think he would seriously consider an offer from them and I think he would have to be on their list of candidates. If he left, would he take anyone with him? Robinson? Santucci? Recruits?

Could you imagine the meltdown out there if they hired a defensive coordinator who's never been a hc? Not a shot at Elko, he'll get his turn. Typically you have to start a wee bit smaller than a top 10ish job.

USC will always hire an offensive minded coach
That's not Elko
Worry more about an SEC or Big ten team.

Yep, like LSU after the shrimp boat captain gets fired after going 5-7 this year.

Elko is from NJ and big PSU guy, he'd take a B1G job.

I'm more worried about frost being fired and Nebraska job being appealing to to him, or UM opening.

USC, urban may get his wish lol and leave the nfl after this year

USC job is all about perception. It will be someone with HC experience.

No chance they even consider Elko. Hunting for a big fish.

I agree. With the state of their program, USC needs a splash hire with head coaching experience. Elko is a great coach but a long way from a splash hire.

Eh - not the same. Smart is a Georgia boy and I wouldnt consider them to be a USC level job.

They will probably pursue Cincinnati's coach

Campbell would be an absolute home run hire for USC.

Yep. Their program cannot afford another coach who needs a firing after 2-3 years.

Likely this. So if it is, or if Franklin (which I can't see happening), Elko might be interested in those jobs. The day is probably coming regardless. He's a great coach.

Elko could ultimately be a casualty of the domino effect that starts with USC....but he isn't getting the USC job.

And each off season until he leaves the chances increase that he'll finally get the type of opportunity he wants.

Mmm No.

Pete Carroll is a defensive coach.

If interested in USC potentials, this is a well written, entertaining article…. funny hiw they conclude the Urban Meyer paragraph… "yeah, he would totally
do that."

As long as Elko's name gets mentioned when these P5 head coaching jobs open up, that means our defense is playing well.

I'm okay with that.

I could see USC going after Deion Sanders or a splash hire like that.

The solution is to make Elko by far the highest paid DC around. He is on par with Venables no doubt. I don't see a problem with $5M/ year if the boosters can swing it. That kind of money without the HC headaches might keep him happy here.

USC wouldn't hire Orgeron bc he didn't fit in with their bigs. Think stuck up OC types. Kind of like Plano new money, but a bit more established and self confident. Less outwardly brash. Orgeron was a swamp rat to them, even if he could go to Watts and Long Beach and get the recruits.

Elko is low key and seems introverted. He wouldn't fit either.

For the right personality, it is a great job. They demand results, but meddle less than most big programs (until the coach stops winning).

Lane could someday be the guy if he continues to develop self control. Sark fit in, but had a drinking problem.

Urban was perfect, but politics kept him out.

Well regarding Kiffin and Sark rehire... We did hire John Robinson twice.

But I'd say highly unlikely.

Matt Campbell is the obvious choice. Iowa st would beat usc with far less talent. He is young and has proven he can coach. If I am USC this is a no brainer.

On a side note it would be funny for UCLA to do well and usc snag chip Kelly.

I'm more worried about USC getting James Franklin from PSU and Elko going there.

Maybe Elko likes his role and where he's at? Not to mention he's being paid well.

Sure, presumably if offered a HC job like USC, Michigan, LSU, Nebraska, whatever he'd leave.
