Report: Chris Petersen out of USC coaching search, James Franklin top candidate left

Cred: Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

On Sunday it was reported that USC’s top two candidates to fill the Trojans’ coaching position were Boise State’s Chris Petersen and Vanderbilt’s James Franklin.

ESPN’s Joe Schad broke news on Monday morning that Petersen has removed himself from the search.

If earlier reports are true, that leaves Franklin as the Trojans’ top target to become the new head coach.

Franklin has turned the previously-downtrodden Vanderbilt program around. He has a 23-15 record, and following this season will have taken the Commodores to three straight bowl games.

To put Franklin’s success into perspective, Vanderbilt has a lifetime winning percentage of .498 – Franklin’s record at the helm equates to a .605 winning percentage. Vanderbilt has been to six bowl games in the program’s history, two of which belong to Franklin.

Reports are that a decision could be made as early as this week.
