CBS Sports' Bruce Feldman refutes a report that stated Ed Orgeron will likely be Alabama's next DL coach.
"Saw reports saying that Ed Orgeron is expected to join Bama staff.. I am pretty sure that's NOT gonna happen. Never was," Feldman tweeted. Orgeron hoped to draw head coaching consideration after leaving USC following the season, and taking a job as a positional coach, even with Alabama, might not be a step up. Jan 13 - 10:26 AM

Ed Orgeron will become Alabama's next DL coach "unless they hit a snag," according to a source close to Yahoo! Sports' Rand Getlin.

Nick Saban already added Lane Kiffin to his staff as the school's offensive coordinator, so hiring Orgeron would bring this thing full circle. Nearly every player that works under Orgeron loves him. He is a competitive and hard working coach and widely regarded as one of the best positional coaches out there. He turned down staying at USC to pursue another head coaching opportunity.

USC head coach Steve Sarkisian wants former interim coach Ed Orgeron on his staff.

Orgeron left the program after he was not offered the head coaching job, and he wants to pursue a program where he can earn the same title. "I thought about him again after the game on the ride home," Sarkisian said on the radio. "I think when emotions get settled down, and I know that was an emotional time for Ed and not getting named the head coach when he thought he should have been..." Orgeron has a long history coaching the defensive line.

CBS Sports' Bruce Feldman reports that Ed Orgeron is not interested in the head coaching vacancy at Arkansas State.

Orgeron probably feels as though he deserves another shot as a head coach under the bright lights of a BCS stadium. That may be the case, but big schools will be reticent to give him another chance after Orgeron face planted at Ole Miss several years ago. Orgeron may never stop paying for the sins of his past, but he should have elite-paying assistant gigs as a recruiting ace available to him in perpetuity.

USC beat writer Scott Wolf reports Ed Orgeron has applied for FAU's head coaching vacancy.

That was quick. Orgeron informed players he was resigning from USC after the school hired Steve Sarkisian as their head coach. The excellent recruiter obviously wants a head coaching gig somewhere.

USC interim head coach Ed Orgeron has resigned following Steve Sarkisian's hire as the full-time head coach, according to Heather Brittany.

Orgeron met with the team and told them he would resign from the school, "despite being offered more money and an Assistant HC position," according to Brittany. We are a bit surprised, since Orgeron did such a fantastic job after Lane Kiffin was fired, but he obviously wants a head coaching gig. USC likely did their best to keep the beloved coach.

USC alums and NFL Hall-of-Famers Marcus Allen, Ronnie Lott, Anthony Munoz and Ron Yary all pledged support to interim head coach Ed Orgeron.

"From the depths of despair, from a program that was flat-lining, he has made a tremendous turnaround," Allen said. Lott said Orgeron should "not only got to be considered, but he should be very high on the list." Orgeron's fan base is increasing by the week, but it won't matter if he can't make a believer out of USC athletic director Pat Haden.

Former USC head coach Lane Kiffin believes the school should hire Ed Orgeron on a full-time basis.

Kiffin was asked who should be USC's next coach, "that's easy," Kiffin said. "It should be Ed Orgeron -- How can you even possibly think of anybody else." The school's locker room seems to agree, as they have praised Orgeron with every available opportunity.
