Is Jack Del Rio headed to USC?

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
The three most important words today in Southern California are Jack Del Rio.

The Jacksonville Jaguars coach and former USC star has been sent a contact offer to become the school's lead man, replacing the departed Pete Carroll.

Del Rio is still under contract with the Jaguars and if he is fired the team will have to buy out the rest of his contract, which is estimated at more than $15 million. If he resigns, he gets zip.

In seven seasons in Jacksonville, Del Rio is 58-57 and has reached the postseason twice. He has no collegiate coaching experience, but was the MVP of the 1985 Rose Bowl while with the Trojans. Perhaps most importantly, he fits the bill of a defensive specialist, something the school has made it known would be important in its search.
