08:19 AM ET 03.25 | Might USC's next basketball coach be right under its nose? If you are Pat Haden, you must be intrigued by the availability of Ben Howland. Who else has three Final Four appearances in the past nine tournaments? Nobody but Tom Izzo, Roy Williams and the retired Jim Calhoun. Howland also has won four more NCAA tournament games in his 10 regular seasons than any other Pac-12 team. ... Better yet, USC wouldn't have to pay Howland's moving expenses. He wouldn't have to get up to speed on his opponents, especially the one on the Westside. And he would already know USC's players, probably well enough to know he should replace them. Didn't Haden say something about wanting a "proven winner?"

I still think he should bring back Tim Floyd.

Look no further than his football coach.

USC doesn't have a basketball program.

This must be another attempt at humor by the FN interns.

Andy Enfield's got a hot wife (Amanda Marcum). That would fit right in with USCw's recent hiring practices...
