Offense or defense?

Even though he hired a defensive coordinator for the first time, USC coach Pete Carroll continues to spend as much time with the defense as he did before the staff reorganization.
This is interesting because a number of people closely tied to the program believe Carroll made the change so he could devote more time to the offense, which has so many new faces in key roles next season and might require his attention.
Even though Carroll officially spends more time with the defense, he’s always exerted control over the offense. Most famously, he said he revamped the offensive philosophy in the latter stages of the 2001 season and did not fully implement the changes he wanted until the start of the 2002 season.
