Who is going to be USC’s recruiting coordinator now that Johnny Nansen has been fired?
It can be an important position. Remember, Pete Carroll’s recruiting coordinators were Ed Orgeron, Lane Kiffin and Brennan Carroll. That’s probably a pretty good illustration of how you better have the right person in the job because Carroll’s teams gradually declined at the end.
I can’t say there is a natural candidate at the moment and maybe one of the new defensive hires will fit the profile. But whoever gets the role has the added bonus of dealing with the perceived lame-duck status of Clay Helton while evaulating recruits.
