Lynn Swann finally spoke about the college admissions scandal and it was as delusional as when he discusses Clay Helton and USC football.
“I think everybody was blindsided by this,” Swann told the Los Angeles Times. “Everyone was completely shocked, caught off guard and taken by surprise.”
Especially the out-of-touch athletic director who ceded day-to-day duties from Day 1 to his subordinates.
The worst part is when Swann said he would not resign and offered a defense of his qualifications.
“I have not considered resigning. I’m committed to this school and I’m committed to this job. This was an opportunity that presented itself to me. I never went out looking for this job, but this is a job I feel I’m prepared for.
“Everything I do at USC, I’ve done before for someone else whether that’s raising capital, sitting on corporate boards, being chairman of the board of trustees for Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, chairman of the President’s Council on Sports Fitness and Nutrition.”
Sitting on boards is a great qualification. No wonder he’s done such a great job.
Aren’t people who sit on boards supposed to take responsibility when bad things happen? Swann never does.
