It is being reported tonight that Norm Chow is working on a deal to become the Offensive Coordinator at USC.
Chow would again take the helm for the Trojan offense as he did during the Pete Carroll era. This is a blow to cross town rival UCLA, who has to have been shocked by the news much as Tennessee fans were by Kiffin's departure back to LA.
What Lane Kiffin dubbed a hard and quick decision seems to be a little more deliberate with the news that Norm Chow is seeking a return to the Trojan sideline.
Why would you bring in a new offensive coordinator with a new coaching staff about to come in and take over unless they were also in contact with Norm Chow? The answer is you would not.
This story with Kiffin and the Vols seems to thicken all the time and we will keep you updated as it unfolds.
