FootballScoop is reporting that former Nebraska defensive backs coach Marvin Sanders will leave Florida Atlantic after just two months to become defensive backs coach at Southern Cal. Sanders, who resigned from Nebraska a year ago for personal reasons, joined the FAU staff shortly after Carl Pelini took over as head coach of the Owls. InsideSoCal.com is also reporting that Southern Cal is interested in Sanders.

What's the link here? Southern Cal defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin originally recommended that Frank Solich select Bo Pelini back in 2002. Those connections assuredly have led his son (and Southern Cal head coach) Lane Kiffin to look towards Sanders.

Those connections with the Nebraska coaching tree are also leading to another coaching change. FootballScoop.com is also reporting that Southern Cal will hire North Dakota State defensive coordinator Scottie Hazelton as linebackers coach. North Dakota State head coach Craig Bohl was Bo Pelini's predecessor at Nebraska.
