I’ve been as involved as they’ll let me be… there’s a lot of front-runners right now,” hy het gesê. “You’ve got a wild card like Mike Tomlin, if Mike Tomlin wants out… At the end of the day there’s not a ‘that’s the guy everybody’s pointing their fingers at.'

He also mentioned Penn State’s James Franklin, Iowa-staat’s Matt Campbell and Cincinnati’s Luke Fickell.

I think anybody is a potential candidate right now, and that’s what’s so great about the job: It can lure an NFL guy that is tired of their current situation and worried about, is Ben Roethlisberger gone, is he done, who are we going to draft? Does Mike Tomlin have to start over with a first-round, young rookie quarterback?” Palmer said

Everybody’s on the table being that that job is so big and so coveted. I think there’s a bunch of people that are in the discussion, and once we get to Week 16, 17 of the NFL season and the college football season is over, we’ll have a direct front-runner.

USC fired Clay Helton in the middle of the season. Helton was 1-1 at the time of his dismissal. USC hasn’t been as relevant since Sam Darnold was under center. The Trojans won the Rose Bowl in 2016 – their last major bowl game.
