USC assistant coach Donte Williams interviewed for the defensive backs job at Oregon after Dan Lanning was hired as coach, according to sources.
Williams was the preferred choice of Ducks defensive coordinator Tosh Lupoi but Lanning wanted to go in another direction.
It shows Williams was prepared to leave USC after Lincoln Riley got hired. It might have been a coup for the Ducks in 2020 to get Williams back. In late 2021, not so much.
