Jamie Dixon had better get ready for USC phone calls

Pittsburgh Coach Jamie Dixon, who grew up in the San Fernando Valley and was a standout at Sherman Oaks Notre Dame, would be the first choice of some USC basketball fans when the school begins its search to find a replacement for Tim Floyd, who reportedly resigned Tuesday.

Another logical candidate would be Oregon State Coach Craig Robinson. More possibilities: Former Sacramento Kings Coach Reggie Theus, St. Mary's Coach Randy Bennett and Virginia Tech Coach Seth Greenberg.

But the Trojans could be hampered in trying to hire a top replacement, considering no one knows what the outcome will be on the ongoing NCAA investigation involving O.J. Mayo and the Trojans basketball program.
