REPORT: Lincoln Riley Set to Leave Oklahoma for New Job

The Sooners will be on the hunt for a new head football coach.

Just one day after stating that he will not be the next head coach at LSU, Oklahoma's Lincoln Riley is reportedly finalizing a deal to make him the next head football coach at USC, per a report from Pete Thamel of Yahoo! Sports.

In five years as the head coach of the Sooners, Riley went 55-10 and won four Big 12 championships. In that time, he also guided the Sooners to three College Football Playoff appearances (2018, 2019, 2020) and coached back-to-back Heisman Trophy winners (Baker Mayfield, Kyler Murray) who went on to be back-to-back 1st overall selections in the NFL Draft.

Riley went 4-0 against West Virginia.
