Mike Goff, a 12-year NFL veteran who helped coach the USC offensive line, has been hired as the offensive line coach at Western Kentucky.
This is actually a loss for the coaching staff. Goff was widely respected at USC and probably deserved a shot to be offensive line coach.
He also was a rarity at USC, a man of principle: Goff always coached the offensive line at USC and then switched to defensive line this season. Sources said it was because he did not believe in what then-offensive line coach Neil Callaway was teaching the linemen.
When Clay Helton fired Callaway, Goff went back to the offensive line and helped out Tim Drevno.
No surprise Tyson Helton hired him after working with him for a couple seasons.
