Remember when I wrote Mike Bohn had second thoughts about taking the USC job because Carol Folt had reservations about hiring Urban Meyer?
Here was Folt’s answer based on my report:
I asked #USC President Carol Folt about whether she’s placed any limitations on new AD Mike Bohn and what he can or can’t do with the football coaching position. Her response: pic.twitter.com/7gtSmmawkn— Ryan Young (@RyanYoungRivals) November 7, 2019
I’ve heard from multiple sources for weeks that Folt did not want Meyer. I wrote two days ago a source told me a major donor offered to pay off Clay Helton’s contract if she would hire Meyer. She supposedly told the donor she did not need the money
Folt has the right to not want Meyer. But her answer above is not true if that is the case. So she should explain to people what happened two weeks ago.
What about restrictions with Bob Stoops? Why didn’t she want to pay his coaching staff what Stoops requested?
The bottom line is, Folt has some explaining to do.
