Orgeron replaces Lane Kiffin, who was fired after Saturday night’s 62-41 loss at Arizona State. Kiffin was 28-15 in three-plus years at USC.

Orgeron has head coaching experience; he led Mississippi to a 10-25 record from 2005 to 2007.

“Ed is a good man who knows USC,”  Haden said.

Haden said Orgeron would be USC’s interim coach for at least the remaining eight games. Haden would not speculate on a possible successor to Kiffin.
