USC fired head coach Clay Helton on Monday.
The Trojans’ vacancy has led college football analysts to speculate who will be USC’s next head coach.
FOX Sports college football analyst Joel Klatt listed Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley among several candidates he recommends to fill the Trojans’ vacancy.
If Riley were to fill the Trojans’ vacancy, Oklahoma would be searching for a head coach.
If that were to happen, the Sooners almost certainly would consider Heupel as a successor. His Sooners ties run deep.
Heupel, in his first year as Tennessee’s head coach, won the 2000 BCS national championship as Oklahoma’s quarterback. He later served as a graduate assistant (2003-04), quarterbacks coach (2006-10) and co-offensive coordinator (2011-14) at Oklahoma.
The topic of Heupel and head coaching opportunities in Oklahoma or Utah have been discussed previously on the show “Football Two-A-Days.”
The following shows can be listened to below regarding Heupel.
