Houston Chronicle - over 1 year
Some observers claim that the USC football job is the most attractive coaching position in college football.
With the firing of Steve Sarkisian on Monday, potential candidates are being bandied about for the Trojans’ job.
It’s also prompted the online gambling website Bovada to post odds on who they believe their leading candidates for the job would be.
Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin and TCU coach Gary Patterson are mentioned, but far down the list.
Here’s how Bovada ranks the leading candidates.
Kyle Whittingham, Utah +350
Chip Kelly, Philadelphia Eagles +600
Brian Harsin, Boise State +600
Tom Herman, Houston +700
Justin Fuente, Memphis +700
Clay Helton, interim USC coach +800
Jack Del Rio, Oakland Raiders +800
Chris Petersen, Washington +900
Brian Kelly, Notre Dame +900
Kevin Sumlin, Texas A&M +1100
Gary Patterson, TCU +1100
Mark Dantonio, Michigan State +1500
