Mike Bohn’s media tour included a stop on 710-AM this morning with Jorge Sedano.
On his time as USC athletic director, Bohn said, “I’d be dishonest if I didn’t say it’s been rollercoaster.”
He was also asked if USC’s highly-rated recruiting class validated his decision to keep Clay Helton: “Well . . . we’re lucky to have Clay Helton as our coach.”
Asked about Gov. Newsom’s announcement that pro sports could resume in June: “I think that’s certainly encouraging news. We’re all in the same boat of trying to figure out what’s best and what’s right for our respective institutions.
“Let’s be a little bit more patient. Let’s push down a little bit on our patience button.”
Asked how much time football would need to prepare for a season: “I think if coaches were honest, eight weeks ideal amount of time . . . in a worst case six weeks.”
And on playing Ole Miss in 2025-26: “We listened to our fans very early (on the UC Davis game). We heard them. They wanted to play better non-conference games.”
- USC has named Jeremy Kipp as its new men’s and women’s swim coach. He was the head coach at Northwestern and previously spent eight seasons at USC as an assistant.
