Former USC defensive line coach Pete Jenkins is going to be back on campus to help out as a consultant with the defensive line.
Jenkins was hired by Ed Orgeron in 2013. He was a mentor to Orgeron and was LSU defensive line coach in 2016-17. Jenkins is also expected to help out the Dallas Cowboys and Alabama this spring.
USC needs all the help it can get so his appearance cannot hurt unless Clancy Pendergast tries to act like he knows more.
- USC led UCLA, 4-0, but lost 7-5, at Dodger Stadium on Sunday as the Trojans committed four errors that led to four runs for the Bruins. USC is 5-9 overall.
Let me explain why I mention baseball results. It’s not because I am against the team. It is because Lynn Swann has completely ignored baseball. I thought Dan Hubbs might get fired two years ago. But Swann doesn’t care. The word at Heritage Hall is Swann did not want to fire Hubbs because he would need to pay him off. His contract expires this season.
So in the meantime, the program is being held hostage for a third straight season. USC was 21-34 in 2017. It was 26-28 in 2018. And Swann did nothing.
The players and fans deserve more than an apathetic athletic director.
