The rumor going around Heritage Hall on Monday was that athletic director Mike Bohn might resign.
According to sources, Bohn feels betrayed by USC president Carol Folt because he merely followed orders in keeping Clay Helton but was taking the brunt of the criticism from the fans.
Bohn went from hero to zero in less than a month.
Now it could be that this rumor started because Bohn vented about the situation and people started talking.
Or maybe he wants people to hear that he didn’t solely make the decision. But I wrote last week how Folt went out of her way on campus to make sure people knew she was part of the decision-making process.
It obviously would be amazing if the rumor were true.
But the bottom line is USC was rocked last week. Folt might not realize it. Bohn has to realize it. And it remains a highly dysfunctional athletic dept. that did itself no favors by bringing Helton back.
