First, some of you think Carol Folt doesn’t care about sports.
Loved being here with these @USC_Athletics graduates for the @USCAnnenberg commencement. They said that being back at the @lacoliseum was like playing in a home game! #uscgrad #2020Trojan #2021Trojan pic.twitter.com/X960hfhJxM— Carol Folt (@PresidentFolt) May 19, 2021
- Meanwhile, a USC alumnus sent me this regarding Max Nikias still getting paid millions by the university.
“I know nobody likes the optics, but it’s like a coaching buyout, except coaches don’t also come with academic tenure. Honoring his contract (including the office on campus) was way less expensive and messy than a lawsuit would have been.
“Nikias was never accused of actually being involved in any of the scandals, just having a leadership style that fostered them. It’s not like he was caught doing drugs with a prostitute in a hotel room like the med school dean . . . and I recall that dean got a severance package and going-away reception, too.”
Do you agree or disagree?
