USC: In news that a lot of people probably won't find shocking, the LA Daily News is reporting that Kevin Sumlin is currently USC's top target according to their sources (but adds the "search is still in an early stage").

The report also mentions Chris Petersen, James Franklin and Jack Del Rio as names most frequently associated with the search and adds Ed Orgeron; but says that Orgeron is "not expected" to get the job. As always, take the report for what its worth and we'll keep you posted.
