LOS ANGELES (AP) - Ed Orgeron has no idea how much longer he'll be the head coach at Southern California.
Could be years. Could be a few more days.
But the past two months have been among the most enjoyable times of his coaching life. No matter what athletic director Pat Haden decides next month, Orgeron is profoundly grateful for his interim opportunity to revive the spirit of a proud program while leading the No. 23 Trojans (9-3, 6-2 Pac-12) to six wins in seven games heading into the regular-season finale Saturday against No. 22 UCLA.
''It's passed fast,'' Orgeron said. ''This is eight weeks where we're having fun. I think you can come out here and see the guys having fun. You can come in our staff room, see us laughing and joking. The days pass by fast. I just enjoy coming to work with this team and this coaching staff. It's been a blast.''
