Wide receiver Velus Jones, who may or may not be transferring, will be at Tennessee’s spring scrimmage Saturday. I wonder if Tee Martin will try to convince Jones to transfer there!
Speaking of Martin, he addressed getting fired from USC yesterday at his only press conference for the spring.
“It was kind of a perfect storm last year, if you will. It was just a young team, had lost your top offensive players at every position, whether it was wide receiver, losing your quarterback, your top tight end. And it was what it was. We didn’t perform the way that you need to perform at a place like that. So you get canned, but every coach in this business, at some point, you’re going to get fired. For me, it was a lesson for me to learn about planning for your future and doing the best that you can do at job that you’re currently at.
“You can’t take a job worried about losing your job, and you can’t think about the last job when you take the next job. It was my first opportunity going through that. And it was positive to leave a place that was really good. I have no bad words to say about where I came from, but then you get blessed up and come to Tennessee. It was a blessing for me.”
- I hear a new office is prepared for former USC president Max Nikias with an intercom/camera outside door and a 24/7 security camera in the ceiling. No unwelcome visitors!
Tweet of the day
I was passing around a tray of breaded shrimp at a private party at The Sporting Club in NYC mid eighties. I walked up to Lynn Swann and said, “Would you sign my shrimp?” He picked one off the tray took a bite and put it back. https://t.co/GuhmDCWv49
