Reports: USC hires Arkansas’ Eric Musselman as coach

eric musselman

Southern California is hiring Arkansas coach Eric Musselman to the same position, several outlets reported Thursday.

Terms of the contract were not yet reported. USC’s opening was created when Andy Enfield left the school to take the same role at SMU last week.

Musselman, 59, joins USC ahead of its move to the Big Ten Conference later this year. It was reported Tuesday that he would interview for the Trojans’ job.

Musselman took over at Arkansas in 2019 and guided the Razorbacks to three straight NCAA Tournaments from 2021-23. They went to two straight Elite Eights followed by a Sweet 16 before finishing 16-17 (6-12 SEC) in 2023-24.

Musselman spent much of his coaching career on the West Coast, including head-coaching roles with the NBA’s Golden State Warriors (2002-04) and Sacramento Kings (2006-07). He entered the college ranks in 2012 as an assistant at Arizona State, and, as the head coach of Nevada, he took the Wolf Pack to three NCAA Tournaments in four years, including a Sweet 16.

He is 221-93 as a college head coach over nine seasons between Nevada and Arkansas.
