UPDATED Nov. 25th at 12:40 p.m: 

The USC Trojans blew another second half leading, losing to Notre Dame. USC falls to 5-7, meaning they aren't bowl eligible. With this loss, Clay Helton's seat grows even hotter and it would be a real surprise for Helton to not be fired. If so, who could USC hire as its next head coach? Here's our original list of top 10 candidates

Original story from Nov. 12th below: 

After an embarrassing loss to Cal over the weekend, the USC Trojans find themselves at 5-5 and at risk of having their worst season since 2001. With the team struggling, is it time to replace head coach Clay Helton? Despite public backing from AD Lynn Swann, the rumors have not died down about Helton's future with the program. So if Clay Helton is fired, who are some of the top candidates to replace him as USC head coach?

Could an ex-NFL coach such as Hue Jackson or Jack Del Rio be interested in the role? If so, what would it take to get former head coach Pete Carroll back in LA? Or perhaps long-time Ravens head coach John Harbaugh could take his talents to CFB if the Ravens dump him. 

As for current college football coaches, would Pac-12 rival coach Chris Peterson be willing to take his talents to Southern California? Or maybe up-and-comer and current Iowa State head coach Matt Campbell is a wildcard for the Trojans potential coaching vacancy? Tune in as Tom Downey breaks the top 10 USC football head coach candidates.
