Did you catch this comment from USC administrator Brandon Sosna when he was asked about his interview with the Detroit Lions?
“We take a lot of pride in the fact that when, whether it’s administratively or from a coaching perspective, that when people are looking for talented members to add to their team, they look to us,” Sosna said.
Who is looking to USC?
I haven’t noticed a rush of schools hiring USC administrators. The last football administrative departure was someone who didn’t even have another job but left because they couldn’t take the unprofessional atmosphere.
Has their been a rush of schools trying to poach USC assistant coaches? Graham Harrell has been mentioned for job but what he did really turn down? A job with the Eagles (maybe) that was less than he had at USC? Todd Orlando was linked to the defensive coordinator’s job at Tennessee, probably at a pay cut, by the way. And who would care if Orlando left?
So, no, I don’t see people “looking to (USC)” when they want to hire someone.
- It seems like every time Nick Saban speaks, he distinguishes himself from Clay Helton. Today, he was asked about a player needing to live up to some responsibilities.
“This is not a democracy.” Saban said.
Can you imagine Helton saying that?
