Jax Reporter On Monday: Mariucci On SC Campus

Michael C. Wright of the FLORIDA TIMES-UNION was first to report last night that Jack Del Rio was going to turn down an offer to coach USC. He was also first today to confirm that fact.

Steve Mariucci Spotted On USC Campus Yesterday

(Wright had Mariucci in USC mix on Monday)

Additionally, Wright was first to connect Steve Mariucci to the USC job, reporting on Monday: “I’m hearing a report about a Steve Mariucci sighting on USC’s campus. Interesting.

It has since been reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter that Mariucci is a candidate for the USC coaching job. I’m not implying Schefter poached Wright’s report on Mariucci, just want to give credit where it’s due. Fine job of reporting on the story by Wright.

Scott Wolf of the L.A. DAILY NEWS continues to float Herm Edwards, Lane Kiffin and Steve Sarkisian as possibilities.
