    According to published reports, he is the first USC football coach to be dismissed in the middle of a season, with Ed Orgeron currently serving as the interim coach while the school works to find a permanent replacement.

    "It's never the perfect time to do these things," USC Athletic Director Pat Haden said during an afternoon news conference on campus (as reported by the Los Angeles Times), "but I thought it was the right time."

    "I'm anxious to see what they are going to look like," Broadus added of the legendary football team that will surely be hoping for a comeback mid-season.
