Following a brutal, 62-41 blowout loss to Arizona State, USC athletic director Pat Haden fired coach Lane Kiffin. He kicked the Kiffster to the curb without much ceremony: the coach was canned in the parking lot of Los Angeles Airport after the team landed on Sunday morning.

Now that Kiffin is gone only five games into the 2013 season, the search is on for who will be standing on the Trojans sidelines in 2014. There are several favorites, but the smart money can only be on one guy.

According to, that favorite is current Denver Broncos defensive coordinator and former Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Jack Del Rio.
