Forget James Franklin. The current breaking news is that Southern Cal is about to hire the next best coaching candidate out there, Steve "Seven Wins at best per season" Sarkisian.
Can this be??? According to UW's 24/7 site, yes.
While the rumors are fast and furious, this is even more interesting:

#USC finalizing deal to hire Washington coach Steve Sarkisian, according to sources. More coming on this— InsideUSC (@InsideUSC) December 2, 2013
Steve Sarkisian has accepted the USC head coaching position— Joe Schad (@schadjoe) December 2, 2013
We applaud the decision by Southern Cal to look within their previous ranks and to hire another former coordinator to their head coaching vacancy, and also by keeping Ed Orgeron, because we all know that is just the perfect recipe for harmony at Southern Cal.
Welcome back to California, Sark.
