USC offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury was one of three Trojans coaches at the Mater Dei-De La Salle game Saturday night.
Kingsbury offered Mater QB Bryce Young, a USC commit, a scholarship to Texas Tech when Young was in the eigth grade.
- In case you missed it yesterday, I reported for USC247.com that Clay Helton wanted to hire a defensive backs coach that Clancy Pendergast does not want to hire.
This is rare split between the two. Helton usually defers to Pendergast on defensive matters. The fact he might do something against Pendergast’s wishes is significant. Of course, why he is keeping Pendergast is surprising enough.
Helton has allowed Pendergast and John Baxter to enjoy exalted status at USC.
- According to Pete Thamel of Yahoo, Austin Peay was interested in hiring Tee Martin as its head coach but Martin prefers to be an assistant coach at a Power 5 school.
