The University of Southern California has one of the premier athletics programs in the NCAA. Over course of its storied history, the University has won over 100 national championships, 87 of which are NCAA championships.

 

Football has long been one of the most prominent programs at USC and across the nation. The Trojans have been playing football since 1888 and claim 11 national championships in that time. Between its earliest years and the 1910s, USC began to establish rivalries with other West Coast universities such as Stanford, California, Arizona and Oregon. Nevertheless, it wasn't until the 1920s that USC became a dominant football presence.

The legend of USC football began to be woven during the brief but influential tenure of "Gloomy" Gus Henderson. During his time as coach (1919-1924), USC posted its first undefeated season (1920) and first Rose Bowl appearance, a 14-3 victory over Penn State in the 1923 game. His record while at USC was 45-7.

Henderson was replaced by the man many identify with USC football: Howard Jones. From 1925 to 1940 he coached the Trojans to a 121-36-13 record, 7 conference titles and four national championships.

Following Jones was Jeff Cravath. In his nine years (1942-1950) as head coach, he compiled a record of 54-28-8 while leading the Trojans to one undefeated season and four Rose Bowl appearances. The end of his tenure was marked by a decline in the Trojans' play.

Cravath was replaced by Jess Hill (1951-1956), a former standout player for the Trojans in the 1920s. His teams posted a 45-17-1 record and two Rose Bowl appearances. Hill stepped down after the 1956 season to become USC's athletic director, a position he would hold until 1992.

Don Clark was Hill's successor and in three season from 1957-1959, he compiled a 13-16-1 record. He remains the only coach to post a losing record at USC over more than one season.

For the 1960 season, the Trojans had a new coach that would catapult them back to the national scene: John McKay. After two straight losing seasons to begin his tenure, the Trojans went 11-0-0 in 1962 and were crowned national champions. This would be the first of four national championships the Trojans would win under McKay. The other championships were in 1967, 1972 and 1974. Overall, McKay compiled a record of 127-40-8 between 1960 and 1975.

McKay was succeeded by another highly successful coach: John Robinson (1976-1982). Under Robinson, USC won another national title in 1978 and two of his players won Heisman Trophies.

The Trojans during the 1980s didn't dominate college football as they had done during the 1970s. Ted Tollner was coach for four season (1983-1986), and led the Trojans to one conference championship and a Rose Bowl victory. Larry Smith was coach for six seasons (1987-1992) and led the Trojans to three conference championships and a Rose Bowl victory. Combined, Tollner and Smith went 70-45-4 in the ten years between 1983 and 1992.

John Robinson returned in 1993 and led the Trojans to another Rose Bowl victory. Unfortunately, mounting losses to traditional rivals Notre Dame and UCLA led USC to look for a replacement. The Trojans found their man in Paul Hackett, but he lasted only three seasons (1998-2000) before being replaced by Pete Carroll.

Carroll came to USC with NFL head coaching experience. The difference he has made can be appreciated from the two national championships USC has won since he took over as coach for the 2001 season.

USC's football legacy is among the greatest in college. It has so far won 37 conference titles and has played in over 40 bowl games, including 31 Rose Bowls.

Overall, USC has won 11 national championships, although some of these are disputed. Additionally, USC has been declared national champions in other seasons by various organizations. USC does not claim titles for those years.
