I mentioned last night I spoke to a pretty well-known coach who knows and worked with Donte Williams and said it was a “good hire, for sure.”
Here are some other thoughts from the coach:
“It’s interesting they are giving someone a title (passing game coordinator) for being a recruiter. It’s more of a recruiting hire, than anything else.
“The way they are acting at USC (over the hire), he may think he’s better than the other coaches They might be making a deal with devil if they giving him assurances he will surive any coaching change.
“The upside is he can educate them on recruiting. Schematically, I don’t see (defensive coordinator) Todd Orlando giving him any stuff (to do).”
“They really need two more like him for recruiting. He’s not enough.”
