USC reportedly wants Pat Hill, Falcons assistant and former Fresno State coach

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Lane Kiffin is looking to a former head coach with strong ties to California to join his staff.

The USC Trojans and head coach Lane Kiffin continue to shake up the football staff, and now they are reportedly looking to add former longtime Fresno State head coach Pat Hill, according to Ryan Abraham of USCfootball.com. Hill currently serves as offensive line coach for the Atlanta Falcons.

Hill headed the Fresno State program from 1997 to 2011 and would be a help in recruiting as he is likely well known among the state's high school football programs. He compiled a 112-80 overall record with the Bulldogs, including a 4-7 mark in bowl games. He has one conference title to his name, the 1999 WAC Championship. Hill was born in Los Angeles and attended school at nearby UC Riverside, so the move could be tempting one.

USC is not lacking an offensive line coach, as James Cregg currently fills that role. Kiffin has been looking to make moves since the Trojans inked their recruiting class on National Signing Day.
