The NFL theory on Kliff Kingsbury seems to be that it is OK to hire someone who went 35-40 at Texas Tech because you just need to pair him with a veteran blue-chip defensive coordinator, sort of like the Rams.
So if that is pro teams think, why doesn’t USC adopt this theory?
They already have Kingsbury. So why not go out and hire the best defensive coach in the nation?
LSU has Dave Aranda. Oregon pays Jim Leavitt $1.7 million a year. Ohio State has Greg Schiano and Alex Grinch.
USC has Clancy “Mr. Personality” Pendergast.
P.S. Lynn: Nice to make that analogy to Notre Dame a month ago when all you did was hire three new coaches. That is not what Brian Kelly did two years ago. Kelly brought in 17 new staff members.
