When Mater Dei coach Bruce Rollinson announced this was his final season, some people immediately mentioned former USC offensive lineman Lenny Vandermade as a top candidate to replace him.
Vandermade went to Mater Dei and has spent more than 10 years as a member of the USC football support staff. He was an offensive analyst for Lincoln Riley. But I didn’t notice him during the season so I checked around.
Sources tell me Vandermade was fired because of a recruiting violation that occurred during a dead period. My first thought was this a severe punishment. But USC’s been pretty stringent on following the rules since the NCAA sanctions.
- USC has offered Tulsa defensive lineman Anthony Goodlow. He made 44 tackles this past season.
