LAS VEGAS - USC deserves something for completing the strangest 10-win season in the history of college football. How about some credit? In the old days 10 wins got you a wire-service trophy and your team picture in the media guide. BOWL TIMELINE: Matchups, schedule and picks In 1974, former USC quarterback Pat Haden, now the school's athletic director, led the Trojans to a national title with 10 wins. USC also won it all with 10 in 1932 and 1967. SUMMARY: USC 45, Fresno State 20 This year's Trojan 10, though, came wrapped in a package that sort of looked like Pandora's Box. Yet, the season most Trojans fans couldn't wait to be over ended with heel clicks and clinking glasses.

I have to believe that even the most devout of the USC faithful are viewing Pat Haden's hiring of Steve Sarkisian with cautious optimism. To the objective observer, this move smacks of a reluctance to distance the program from the specter of Pete Carroll. In sum, not a choice that shows much imagination. Bud Chapman Northridge :: In the words of an L.A. icon, Sgt. Joe Friday, just the facts: Lane Kiffin's record at USC was 28-15; Steve Sarkisian's record at Washington was 34-29.

Since college football's coaching carousel is in full swing, and it's great sport to predict where the dominoes might fall, here's a compelling scenario for USC fans to consider: Fresno State's Tim DeRuyter, one of the hottest names in coaching after leading the Bulldogs to a 10-1 record, is hired by a larger program after Saturday's Mountain West Conference championship game against Utah State. Fresno State quickly hires alum Lane Kiffin, who was fired by USC in September. (Or Fresno State hires Jeff Tedford, who makes Kiffin, a former protégé, the offensive coordinator)

Recently terminated USC head football coach Lane Kiffin and his wife, Layla, have listed their home in Manhattan Beach at $6.995 million. The couple bought the house last year for $5.5 million. The upscale beach city has long been popular with college and professional coaches and athletes, in part because of its proximity to Los Angeles International Airport and professional training facilities.

"It's a done deal. " That was the comment of Loyola Coach Marvin Sanders on Wednesday referring to his running backs coach, Kennedy Polamalu, being hired to coach running backs at UCLA. Polamalu used to be the running backs coach at USC until he was fired by Lane Kiffin. Loyola students raved about his coaching skills. And he was always known as a fantastic recruiter at USC. Sanders, a former USC assistant, brought him to Loyola when he was hired. Polamalu's son, Tre, is Loyola's sophomore quarterback.

New USC football Coach Steve Sarkisian is no stranger to the school. This is his fifth stint as a Trojan. Sarkisian was on USC's baseball team in the fall of 1992 before transferring to El Camino College. In 2001 he returned as an offensive football assistant on Pete Carroll's staff.  In January 2002, Sarkisian left USC to become quarterbacks coach at San Diego State, but he came back to USC in March as quarterbacks coach.

Steve Sarkisian said Tuesday that he was "honored and humbled" to be the new head football coach at USC. "I'm the luckiest guy in the world," Sarkisian told a crowd of nearly 100 members of the media, family members and others at the McKay Center on the USC campus. "This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity," he said. "I can't tell you the feeling I have. " Sarkisian, 39, replaced popular interim coach Ed Orgeron, who led the Trojans to a 6-2 record after taking over for Lane Kiffin earlier this season.

Former USC assistant coach and Washington head coach Steve Sarkisian is now the man in charge of the Trojans football program. Popular interim coach Ed Orgeron is gone. That all went done Monday, obviously an emotional day for everyone involved with the program. PHOTOS: Steve Sarkisian through the years Many fans were upset that Orgeron, who led the Trojans to a 6-2 record after taking over for Lane Kiffin earlier this season, didn't become the permanent coach (see the comment section of any of The Times' USC stories over the last 24 hours for evidence)

Sarkisian, 39, replaces Ed Orgeron, who guided USC to a 6-2 record as interim coach after replacing the fired Lane Kiffin. "It's awesome to be home," Sarkisian said after meeting with the team Monday night.
