Another day for the Big Story.
- John Canzano reports that Oregon State is willing to offer Mike Riley a lifetime contract in order to fend off overtures from USC. Just about every source is reporting that Riley is the top candidate, ahead of Jeff Fisher and Jack Del Rio. And what about Fisher: Will he listen?
- Riley is laying low, which might suggest he's at least willing to listen to the Trojans.
- Is Carroll's departure a good thing for athletic director Mike Garrett?
- Carroll might be interested in hiring Norm Chow, presently at UCLA, as his offensive coordinator in Seattle.
- New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez takes a light-hearted jab at his former coach.
- Might Carroll's departure turn up the heat on California coach Jeff Tedford?
- Meanwhile, USC's players wait for answers, as do his assistant coaches.
- And what's next for USC recruiting?
