Lane Kiffin adds James Cregg to staff

USC’s new coaching staff continues to take on a Tennessee flavor.

Coach Lane Kiffin announced Wednesday that he has hired assistant James Cregg, Tennessee’s offensive line coach last season.

Cregg, 36, is the third coach from Kiffin’s Tennessee staff to move to USC, joining Ed Orgeron, the defensive line coach and recruiting coordinator, and Monte Kiffin, the defensive coordinator.

Before coaching at Tennessee, Cregg was an offensive line assistant for the Oakland Raiders during Kiffin’s brief tenure with the NFL team. In a press release from USC, Kiffin did not specify what position Cregg would coach with the Trojans.
