Pro Football Talk is reporting Kliff Kingsbury might simply resign and walk away from USC if Lynn Swann blocks him from interviewing with NFL teams.
The story reads like it came from Kingsbury’s agent and it might just be a chess move between Kingsbury and USC to allow interviews.
But it shows how bad Lynn Swann is at being an athletic director. He doesn’t know what he is doing. Does he want Kingsbury to resent being at USC since it is not even considered likely at the moment he will get an NFL head-coaching gig.
This should all be a nothingburger. Kingsbury should have interviewed and then it’s over. Instead, Swann is creating an unhealthy situation.
I doubt Kingsbury would resign. But nothing surprises me that happens at USC these days.
It’s a great future advertisement: Come to USC and coach where we will block you from interviewing with the NFL!
