BREAKING: Lincoln Riley and USC closing in on deal to hire the coach away from Oklahoma




 

The last few weeks have been filled with rumors, speculation, lies all on top of more rumors. What started as a Twitter joke while tracking flights blew up into legit speculation that Lincoln Riley was being targeted as LSU's big fish.

He never outright denied the rumors until minutes after the Sooners loss in Bedlam in which he "I'm not going to be the next coach at LSU."

The catch was that he never was asked about LSU. He mentioned LSU himself. Many brushed it off as confirmation that he was staying in Oklahoma Football for the long haul. Recruits shared his comments on Instagram and Twitter and the like.

Not even a full 24 hours later, Riley is in line to be named the next head coach at USC.

According to Matt Zenitz of On3 Sports, Riley's already informed his staff at OU of the impending move.

The Sooners not only lose to their rival this weekend but they lose their head coach half a day later. The move will send major shockwaves through the college football landscape and leave Oklahoma looking for their next head football coach.
