Hey buddy, wanna coach?

Southern California athletic director Pat Haden says people pretending to be representatives of his school have contacted two coaches and attempted to discuss the Trojans' head coaching vacancy with them. USC has identified the posers and is taking "appropriate action," Haden said Monday in a blog post on the school's official website. Haden said somebody posing as a USC official repeatedly tried to speak to an unnamed member of the Denver Broncos' coaching staff about the opening. Another phony school representative contacted Tony Dungy (pictured), the former Tampa Bay and Indianapolis coach. The Trojans fired Lane Kiffin last month and installed Ed Orgeron as their interim coach while Haden looks for a new leader.
