USC to hire Baxter, source says

USC will hire John Baxter, a longtime Fresno State assistant coach, as the Trojans' special teams coordinator, a source told ESPN The Magazine's Bruce Feldman.

Former Tennessee coach Lane Kiffin, hired by USC in January to replace Pete Carroll, continues to build his staff. Since coming aboard, Kiffin has hired James Cregg away from the Vols to be offensive line coach and Joe Barry away from the NFL's Tampa Bay Buccaneers to be linebackers coach.

Kiffin has yet to hire an offensive coordinator.
