We already took a look at potential Lane Kiffin replacements at USC, so it's only fair we travel 3,000 miles east to try to fill the only other BCS coaching vacancy. It doesn't have the household names of Pat Haden's shopping list in Los Angeles, but let's take a quick look at a few candidates potentially gunning for the UConn position this offseason.
ROB AMBROSE, TOWSON: First things first, the Huskies have to look in the mirror. As an FBS program in a BCS conference, they've got the clout to bring in a successful FCS head coach or FBS coordinator. As a team with almost no nationally recognized history and a flagship program in a decaying conference they can't do any better than that. If I was UConn AD Warde Manuel this would be my first phone call. Ambrose has history in Storrs, where he served as Offensive Coordinator from 2002-2008 and his Tigers are 21-7 over the last three years and ranked #3 in the FCS. His upset win at UConn in the season opener dr...

You can always count on Alabama fans to take fandom to the next level. We may have found the most interesting sign of the day in the stands in Tuscaloosa, even though the Northwestern students had an impressive showing for College GameDay.
The Alabama student section played host to a sign that trolled the U.S. government, Ole Miss, and Lane Kiffin all at once:

And failed miserably at that.The head coach of a college football program might be the hardest of all coaching jobs.

Ed Orgeron promised fun at Southern California when he replaced Lane Kiffin, and that's what the Trojans got on the irrepressible interim coach's first day of practice.
The Trojans also got cookies.
Orgeron's booming Cajun drawl echoed over the campus fields Wednesday while the Trojans concentrated on drills designed to raise their competitive fire. Although many players...
USC quarterback Max Browne talks about his relationship with now former USC head coach Lane Kiffin who recruited Browne to the Trojans.
Ed Orgeron is a man of his word.
When named interim coach at USC following the mid-season firing of Lane Kiffin, Orgeron said he wanted to bring passion and fun back to the Trojans.
On Thursday, Orgeron harkened back to his days at the University of Miami when he had the players compete is what is known as the "Trojan Bowl."

Fired USC Trojans coach Lane Kiffin and New York correspondent Stefon are both freaking out, but over very different things.
The only people that may be more excited than USC fans about Lane Kiffin’s pink slip are Tennessee fans, who are still sore about his sudden departure to Los Angeles three years ago after coaching a single season for the Vols. One UT athlete who was in Knoxville for that terrible breakup was Renaldo Woolridge, a forward on the Tennessee basketball team and a member...

Safe to say it’s been a busy week in college football.

My colleague Allen Kenney made the case...

LOS ANGELES -- Ed Orgeron is in love with his expanded role. As the defensive line coach, there were just certain things he wasn't allowed to do.
When he took to Howard Jones Field on Wednesday afternoon he could do just about whatever he wanted.
If athletic director Pat Haden was "blown away" by the the energy and enthusiasm Orgeron could bring day in and day out...
