USC Morning Buzz: The Move To Oregon That Didn’t Happen

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.

    1. He’s doing great Ed! Setting records left & right!!

      Highest inflation
      Highest gas prices
      200 killed in Afghanistan
      Tens of thousands in Ukraine
      Thousands about to die in Taiwan
      Approaching 700K in the US from COVID
      Drugs & human trafficking at the border
      Turning everyone against one another over abortions, guns, etc.
      Blaming anyone & everyone for problems he’s either created or wouldn’t have happened with a stronger President in office

      “It’s hard to believe this has to be said, but unlike this president, I’ll do my job and take responsibility. I won’t blame others. And I’ll never forget that the job isn’t about me — it’s about you,” Dementia Joe on June 4th, 2020.

      81M were dumb enough to believe him. His own party doesn’t even want him in 2024. People with a brain knew this is exactly how a Biden Presidency would go.

      1. You are such a dumbshit it is comical. Trump is responsible for most of your post. It is jerks like you that believe in no abortion and relaxed gun laws. Believe 73 million were dumb enough to vote for old Trumpster.

    2. Dear Ed,
      I think our President did an awesome job with Hunter but he probably messed up a little bit with his daughter ….

      1. Wow! If true that is some sick stuff, Michael.

        And people freaked over Donald’s misogynistic remarks! He wasn’t into little kids, especially his own daughter!

        Helps explain where Hunter picked up his freaky behavior.

  1. I can’t understand the post. It doesn’t make sense to dump on Williams when he’s only an assistant coach. Alex Grinch job is on the line, Williams may leave after one year, why insinuate that he can’t coach when as a writer, you couldn’t do his job? That’s why Scott Wolf is considered a germ spreader. Hopefully your banned from USC forever. Who cares about the freaking assistant coach? It’s nonsense.

    1. Donte is a nice guy. But anyone watching our corners last year had to be ….disappointed. [Actually, those of us who caught the games on television couldn’t “watch” the corners —cuz they weren’t in the same frame as the receivers]…..

  2. Lanning coached with the new DB coach at Sam Houston State in 2014. It took some time before it was announced publicly that Donte was going to be retained.

  3. I tried to post this once before but it was censored somehow.Donte was only retained to avoid losing Domani Jackson.Now that Domant is in the fold, the clock is ticking on Williams.When Donte finishes his cup of coffee, he’s gone.

  5. Williams was thrown into the fire at a s’mores cookout. He was between Graham and Todd, who both thought the job should have been their’s. The head marshmallow (Helton) was given two coordinators who were uncoordinated they got rid of him second game, in their quest to take over the team.
    Harrell was like a college freshman at a girl school dance- all passes no running. Orlando was like the old man and the sea, no tackle, just trying to land one big fish.
    Williams knew football, but never got the respect he needed from the staff, team or fans. He might be a good head coach someday, but after years of having a coach that was on the job training, another OJT coach was not what was needed.
    This year might look good for his unit and whatever recruiting “it” he was hired to bring might yet serve the Trojans.

  6. Donte has this upcoming season to recruit like he is touted and then coach like he is qualifed for the position. LR will decide when season ends I am sure.

  7. We whiffed on another o line prospect, Lucas Simmons. I assume at some point we will get kids here, but so far Riley is 0-3 on the blue chip o line recruits.
