Adam Schefter of ESPN suggests that Stve Marriuci could be the next coach at USC.
“One name that the USC program has been in contact with that now could gain some steam is former 49ers coach Steve Mariucci,” Schefter said.
“Steve Mariucci would welcome the opportunity to come back to coaching. He interviewed for the Washington Redskins' head coaching job a couple years ago, was offered the chance to go and coach the Redskins, didn't take the opportunity, went back home to California and has always reserved the right to return to coaching in the right opportunity.
“He's coached in college before, at California. He and USC have had some informal discussions throughout this past weekend. And now, with Del Rio staying at Jacksonville, with Mike Riley staying at Oregon State, you have to figure the conversations now could pick up some momentum and gain some steam.”

However a coach that Mariucci used to work for as a QB coach says that he hasn't heard from USC.
"I talked with him this noon, and he said absolutely no contact had been made," Murphy said. "Whether he coaches (at USC) is irrelevant to me." I just hope he stays on the West Coast."
