Lane Kiffin is nearing completion of his remade coaching staff.
Kiffin last month hired Clancy Pendergast as defensive coordinator. Pendergast is expected to coach the secondary, Ekeler linebackers.
USC players were informed this week that Mike Summers, a Kentucky assistant, would join USC’s staff as offensive line coach. James Cregg could remain on the staff, possibly as tight ends coach.
Other than Pendergast, USC has not announced the hiring of assistants.
