Mooch in the mix
Perhaps Steve Mariucci is not done coaching. ESPNs Adam Schefter is reporting that the former Lions and Niners coach is in the mix to take over at USC after Pete Carroll bolted for the Seattle Seahawks.
Mariucci has not coached since he was fired by the Lions on Nov. 28, 2005. He was canned by Matt Millen after accumulating a 15-28 record.
The Iron Mountain native and best buddy of Tom Izzo has one year of head coaching at the college level on his resume. In 1996 he took Cal to a 6-6 record. From there he went to the 49ers where he was 13-3 in his first season.
