Sometimes, former USC assistants actutally do move up the coaching ladder.
Scottie Hazelton, who was linebackers coach at USC in 2012, was named defensive coordinator at Michigan State. Hazelton was the defensive coordinator at Kansas State last season.
Before that, he was defensive coordinator at Wyoming.
Guess that year with Clancy Pendergast didn’t do too much damage. Also, he got to work with Ed Orgeron too.
