John Brice of FootballScoop.com reported on Sunday that Fickell is expected to be “prominently featured” in USC’s coaching search. However, the Bearcats coach has no connections to the West Coast and has not expressed much interest in the Trojans job.

Many have viewed Fickell as a natural candidate for USC. While Cincinnati is having an outstanding season and should receive College Football Playoff consideration, there is also the athletic director connection. USC AD Mike Bohn was the AD at Cincinnati when Fickell was hired as head coach there in 2017. USC boosters might be hoping Bohn can convince Fickell to take the job, but it doesn’t sound likely.

  UCLA star Dorian Thompson-Robinson trolls USC after winning rivalry game The Bruins dismantled the USC Trojans in their rivalry game on Saturday, winning by the final of 62-33. It was their first win over USC since 2018. UCLA quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson was particularly sharp, throwing for 349 yards and four touchdowns. He also added another 46 yards and two touchdowns on the ground.After the game, Thompson-Robinson trolled USC in a tweet.“Love this team,” he wrote. “#FightOff” Love this team. #FightOff — DTR (@DoriansTweets) November 21, 2021 The hashtag was a mocking play on USC’s famous battle cry of “Fight On.

Fickell is currently focused on stating the case for Cincinnati to be considered one of the four-best teams in the country. The Bearcats are 11-0, though they barely rank inside the top 50 in strength of schedule and have struggled against some mediocre competition. Fickell had a strong reaction earlier this month when Cincinnati was ranked lower in the CFP rankings than the national rankings.
