Carol Folt seems to have stepped up sports tweets in recent months. Whether it was Lincoln Riley, Caleb Williams, spring football or today’s coaches confab.
What’s the explanation?
- She always liked sports.
- She is promoting sports because she sees its importance at USC.
- Or maybe sports is a way to talk about USC and take people’s minds off some of the other things a President deals with, like that Rossier School of Education scandal last week.
Sports can also help improve relations with some of the older boosters, who seem to be one of the groups she is least popular with.
Great meeting with our @USC_Athletics head coaches. I’m grateful for their hard work, commitment, and dedication, which inspires our athletes to be the best that they can be – both on and off the field. pic.twitter.com/z1BdKDQ1le— Carol Folt (@PresidentFolt) March 29, 2022
