Orgeron deserving of a second chance

LOS ANGELES -- Back in early February, it was strongly suggested here that what the Trojans needed to do to resurrect a program that was obviously going in the wrong direction was to change the culture.

Former Trojans head coach Lane Kiffin was unable to change that culture, among other things, and USC athletic director Pat Haden had eventually seen enough and fired Kiffin with the season not even halfway completed.

Now with just three games remaining in the regular season, the USC Trojans are on the verge of perhaps not only being the story of the Pac-12, but interim head coach Ed Orgeron has emerged as a legitimate candidate for Pac-12 Coach of the Year.

Could Orgeron really be the Pac-12 Coach of the Year?
