Is Todd Orlando going to fire any defensive coaches or bring in his own staff?
It’s still unknown although I hear USC defensive coaches have been subtly putting out feelers for other jobs during Clay Helton (and Mike Bohn’s) search for a defensive coordinator.
I would be surprised if Orlando doesn’t want to bring in some of his own guys.
One thing you can be assured about is USC is not paying Orlando the $1.71 million he made at Texas each of the past two seasons. His Texas contract expires in March.
Remember his first game at Texas? The Longhorns gave up 51 points to Maryland in a 51-41 loss to the Terrapins two weeks before losing to USC, 27-24, in double overtime at the Coliseum.
- I hear Ron Orr, who was fired last week in the mini-purge of USC administrators, is worried whether the Swim with Mike event will continue that he started in 1981. Let’s hope so, since it provides academic scholarships to physically challenged athletes.
