Is Del Rio emerging as USC's lead candidate?

Several reports say that Jack Del Rio, at present the Jacksonville Jaguars coach, has moved to the fore of USC's search to replace Pete Carroll.

This one says that Del Rio has been offered a contract. This one, also from the LA Daily News, says he will bring in former Notre Dame defensive coordinator Jon Tenuta to run the defense.

This one, however, says that Del Rio is likely to stay with the Jaguars.

Stay tuned. This could develop quickly.
