According to a report by Scout.com, former Michigan head coach Brady Hoke is one of the first three candidates expected to interview for the position.

Hoke finished his four year Michigan tenure with a 31-20 record. He was previously the head coach at San Diego State and Ball State, and served as defensive line coach at Oregon State and Michigan in the 1990s. The other two names mentioned are two Oregon alumni who served on Steve Sarkisian's staff at USC: former Trojans defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox and current linebackers coach Peter Sirmon.
