USC might be many things but it is not cheap, depending who you are, of course.
USC has hired Jeff Martin of LSU as its director of scouting/player relations. His title at LSU was lead personnel analyst/player development. Since you have already read the breathless reports from the usual suspects, let me add something new to this hire:
A USC source tells me Martin will be paid around $150,000.
That might be a six-figure raise from what he made at LSU. Remember if someone tells you USC needs a donation, it really doesn’t. Unless it needs to buy out Clay Helton.
- Big news for USC students this afternoon as Carol Folt announced the university is “planning for a full return to campus for the Fall semester, with in-person classes and residential life.”
So far, USC is the only California university to announce this.
Folt also said the Coliseum might be used for a commencement ceremony.
“(We may use the) Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum for an in-person event with limited guests in addition to hosting an immersive virtual celebration. Please note our in-person planning includes the class of 2020.”
