USC athletic director Mike Bohn spoke to the San Diego Union-Tribune last week for a column published Tuesday.
“I was taught a long time ago in this business, a formula for failure is trying to be everything for everyone,” Bohn said. “We made the right decision for USC and our student-athletes.”
Bohn was also asked how much the decision to retain Clay Helton was his vs. Carol Folt or the boosters, he said:
“Certainly stakeholders are a part of that, which is very normal,” he said. “To insinuate our major donors were an influence on that would not be accurate. They were engaged and were certainly people who provided input and suggestions and thoughts, but by no means was their influence …”
“Bohn paused for a few seconds.
“As significant as maybe some people have portrayed.”
Who thought donors were clamoring to bring Helton back?
And why didn’t he address Folt’s role?
Disappointing comments, again, from Bohn.
