The failure to address Clay Helton’s terrible reign as football coach is obviously a huge shortcoming for the USC athletic dept.
But . . .
The women’s basketball team has not made the NCAA Tournament since 2014 and only two times since 2006. This is a program that was the nation’s crown jewel in the 1980’s. Now it has a coach (Mark Trakh) on his second stint at USC and has not made the tournament in his past 7 seasons.
It’s not a topic that garners a lot of interest. But an athletic director should be accountable for it. Especially when USC tries to act like it is so groundbreaking when it comes to women’s athletics.
