Just a follow-up to the note in today’s column where I wrote about the USC official who skipped the spring football game for the Fresno Relays.
One of the guys that drove up to Fresno with the USC official was former NFL commissioner Pete Rozelle (pictured). Like I said, track was big.
“The Fresno Relays are way bigger than the USC football spring game,” the official said.
John McKay threatened the fire the official if he skipped the football game for the track meet and supposedly did, according to several colleagues.
Even Rozelle’s biography has a reference to the Fresno Relays.
