So I gave you the good news yesterday that the Seahawks are pursuing USC strength coach Ivan Lewis.
But there is a less positive scenario being tossed around the McKay Center that Clay Helton could simply promote offensive line coach Tim Drevno to offensive coordinator. That is the kind of move that would happen in the past but would be pretty disappointing after the initial appointment of Kliff Kingsbury.
Drevno was offensive coordinator at Michigan before Jim Harbaugh fired him so he has some experience. But if it happened you can bet Helton would call a lot of plays.
- Meanwhile, USC basketball player Kevin Porter Jr. remains suspended.
“He is still a part of our basketball team,” USC coach Andy Enfield said. “He will continue to practice with us. He’s working on some things off the court and will be held out of competition until he meets the very clear expectations that are expected of him.”
Porter Jr. might be a lottery pick but he’s been a bust for USC. A “thigh bruise” for six weeks and now suspended. Compare that to the way DeMar DeRozan contributed in his only season.
