It seems to me that USC fans are being asked to accept a lot from the new administration.
The fans haven’t been told much because Carol Folt and Mike Bohn have not had a press conference since bringing Clay Helton back. I’ll bet if this were another USC (South Carolina), there would be a press conference.
But Folt has given the impression on campus she must clean up other things first. And people who work in the administration say Folt and Bohn are hamstrung by the past incompetence of the athletic dept.
It is true Folt/Bohn inherited a mess.
But it is also true the football coaching position could have been fixed too. I’m not sure why people say Bohn just started a couple months ago. He applied for the job in September. Maybe early October. He should have been thinking about a successor and watching USC games from Cincinnati.
Every good athletic director always has a list of candidates for the football job. Bohn had to have one at Cincinnati. He couldn’t contact one of those guys?
There was a paralysis regarding football that Bohn inherited. And perpetuated. He should have hit the ground running. Instead, he took a step back.
