Washington? Hired an assistant from USC.
Wazzou? Can't recall if they actually have a coach, but I seem to recall he was an alum whose head coaching experience was at Eastern Washington.
Oregon must have, right? Chip Kelly was their OC and the HC at New Hampshire before that.
OSU? Mike Riley had success at OSU before failing (miserably) with the Chargers.
Stanford has all the money in the world, right? Hired their OC.
Cal? Tedford was the Oregon OC.
USC? Okay, stop laughing. Really, cut it out. Kiffin's Head Coaching record as of right now, is about that of Mike Stoops. And he's the head coach at US-fuckin-C.
UCLA - Weasel. Alum. Was the OC for the Ravens before he was hired by UCLA. Had success from a win/loss perspective as the HC at UW and Colorado. Left trash heaps when he finished, including this gem, "Jerramy Stevens, the Huskies star tight end, was under investigation of raping a UW freshman on sorority row. When Stevens later crashed his truck into a retirement home, Neuheisel suspended him for half a game."
ASu - He's the more extreme version of Riley. Much greater success in college; double the failure in the NFL. ASu picked him up in the discount bin (Idaho).
UTAH - The Cougars hired their Defensive Coordinator.
Colorado - Hired an alum who was the Redskins TE coach. No previous head coaching experience.
So to answer the question: If you exclude NFL failures (and I wouldn't since the stink of those failures lowered the price of the coaches) maybe OSU and ASu. UCLA if you stretch it. This is the EXACT approach that UofA used in hiring Mackovic.
