Will Ferrell piles on sad USC football with another big coaching name

Will Ferrell piled on the laughingstock that is now USC football.

Showing up on “The Dan Patrick Show” on Monday, the comic had jokes about whom USC, his alma mater, would be choosing as their upcoming head football coach.

“Well, I do not want to stir everything up, but my within resources convey to me a gentleman by the title of Nick Saban will be the upcoming coach,” Ferrell claimed, in what was evidently a bit.

“Nick Saban is a mountain climber, and he’s currently reached the prime of that mountain various occasions. He’s wanting for the upcoming mountain, and that mountain is in Los Angeles, California.”

Right after some prodding, Ferrell “revealed” that his within resource on the subject was previous Trojans quarterback Carson Palmer.

Palmer blurted out on Patrick’s clearly show very last week that USC could have curiosity in Mike Tomlin, which led to a sturdy denial by the Steelers coach.

Though there almost certainly is not ample dollars in the world to make Nick Saban consider leaving Alabama at the age of 70 for a new mountain to climb, it goes without having saying that if USC could land him it would be a momentous coup.

USC fired Clay Helton before this time and has a disappointing 4-4 document.
