As one of the most successful and illustrious of college football teams, the University of South California team, known colloquially as the Trojans, has had to rely on commanding and determined coaches in its long and gilded history.

As in any sport, ranking coaches or players is a somewhat self-defeating task. Especially within a single team, and across its history, it is difficult to say that a Pete Carroll could have been better than Gus Henderson, with a span of several decades separating them.

But it is, nonetheless, always worth a try. Hazardous as it may be, it is a fan's job to compare the incomparable, and discusss the taboo. Just who is the best USC football coach yet?

This selection is not in order. Rather, these are the top 10 USC coaches based on their performances and results, on how many Rose Bowls they brought the Trojans to victory in, for instance. After all, it is quite impossible to say that a coach was worse than another; football involves too many other factors for such a  judgement to be made.

So here are the best 10, as I may correct my title; read on for a short summary of USC history through its coaches.
