With spring practice starting Tuesday, I’m hearing positive comments from players regarding the new strength coaches.
Now I’m always skeptical of praise for USC strength coaches because it tends to rely on athletic dept. spin.
But so far the comments from players are more positive compared to the past few years when new strength coaches took over and were lavishly praised by adminstrators and social media accounts.
The players I’ve talked to like the new strength coaches and say the workouts are better.
Of course, you never really know until the season starts.
Remember last year how new coach Robert Stiner and staff (nicknamed the Proud Boys by players) were pumped up by USC and then the Trojans got pushed all over the field by teams?
For the record, I wasn’t hearing a lot of praise a year ago at this time from the players.
