The latest name to be connected to the vacancy is Jeff Tedford. According to FOXSports.com, USC approached the former Cal head coach shortly after Kiffin's dismissal with an offer to serve as an offensive consultant and recruiter. The offer, the source told the website, came with the suggestion that Tedford would then be considered when it came time to name Kiffin's replacement.
Tedford reportedly declined the opportunity, but made sure the school knew he wanted to be considered for the job.
