So i just heard *before* the Stanford/USC game that Rick Majerus was USC's first choice for head coach a couple years ago but he didn't want the job? Does anyone have any info on this? Why didn't he want the job? Is being an ESPN analyst that fun a thing to do?

Majerus is/was not in the best of health and I think he took the job then reconsidered a few days later.

I don't have any links on this (and frankly too lazy to look it up), but my vague recollection was that the job was actually offered to and preliminarily accepted by Majerus but he either pulled his name from consideration for health reasons or he failed his physical. I don't remember all of the details, but that was my vague recollection. Anyone out there with a better recollection?
