How many times can you fire assistant coaches, get no significant improvement, and think it is the solution?
What amazes me is there are even a few USC fans who think firing Tim Drevno is a solution. I’ve criticized Drevno since he was first coached at USC in 2014. Go back to 2018 and read the comments from USC homer media/over-the-hill pundits who championed Drevno’s return. I did not.
But that’s not the issue. It’s about establishing a culture change. USC replaced its entire defensive staff a year ago and couldn’t change the culture in 2020. A new offensive line coach will not either.
If I wrote some of the stuff I’ve heard this week from within the team, it would shock some fans. At least one player has/is turning pro because of the poor culture.
But all this escapes the administration, which either refuses to buy out Clay Helton’s contract or thinks he deserves to stay. Pathetic.
