USC is not using a search firm to hire a football coach.
I often find these firms to be a waste of money. But Mike Bohn has a mixed record hiring football coaches, so would it be a good idea in this case?
You might have Bohn and a lackey deciding who to hire. And if they go to Carol Folt with a name, do you think she will have any idea who that person is other than Urban Meyer, who she quashed two years ago.
I don’t think Rick Caruso would be any more qualified on this topic either.
I guess the hope is USC gets a really good candidate, that is too big to fail. We’ve all hoped that before.
But a search firm might come in handy if USC gets into a situation where Jack Del Rio and Greg Schiano are fighting it out at the end. You never know.
- USC is aggressively renting out the Coliseum. It will have NBC Sports’ “Premier League Mornings” on Oct. 23-24. On Oct. 21, Pasadena Poly will play La Canada in a prep football game.
- Did you see when USC ran sprints after practice Tuesday because it had so many penalties vs. Colorado, Bohn’s right-hand man, Brandon Sosna, also ran sprints with the team. Whatever happened with that job Sosna interviewed for with the Detroit Lions?
