A USC administrator told me yesterday that one reason the athletic dept. hired an “interim” equipment manager for 2021 could be in case a new football coach wanted his own person in a year.
“But I wouldn’t read too much into that,” the administrator said. “They offered the job to about 10 guys who turned it down so they wanted a full-time guy but they couldn’t close the deal.
“Also, there is a growing feeling around here that Mike Bohn will keep Clay Helton barring a meltdown.”
Isn’t that an uplifting scenario for 2021?
“Helton might blow it but Bohn seems to be giving him a lot of leeway so people are bracing themselves for the possibility Helton stays,” the administrator said.
