I told a Pac-12 coach about whether Donte Williams regrets becoming interim head coach?
But if Williams wasn’t the head coach, he might be getting more criticism for the play of the cornerbacks, which has been below par this season.
“They play really soft,” the Pac-12 coach said.
Williams is in a tough position because he couldn’t turn down becoming interim coach and it does raise his profile.
But he hasn’t improved his stock with the performance of the cornerbacks.
And he hasn’t been very daring as a coach, which I would expect from someone who has little to lose.
He’s also not looked ready for prime time according to the Pac-12 coach.
“He’s on the sideline wearing a baseball cap with his shades on top,” the coach said. “That doesn’t look like a head coach.”
- I’m also tired of hearing USC coaches say they are going to play young players like linebacker Raesjon Davis and then keep them on the sideline. What does USC lose by giving some young players a chance?
