USC coach Kevin O’Neill confirmed today that student manager Stan Holt was fired after receiving a technical foul against Oregon. Holt received the technical with USC trailing 49-47 with 4:35 left.
“He definitely is no longer with us,” O’Neill said.
Running back Dillon Baxter, wide receivers Robert Woods and Kyle Prater, tight end Xavier Grimble and defensive end George Uko were the USC commits named to Parade magazine’s All-American team.
Offensive lineman Seantrel Henderson and linebacker Hayes Pullard, who are getting recruited by USC, also made the team.
Despite getting swept in Oregon, I’m still impressed with Kevin O’Neill. And I like the way he took accountability for the manager’s technical foul yesterday. I’ve championed O’Neill since the day he got hired. By the way, did I say something similar two weeks ago regarding another hire . . .
This report from Eugene quotes Kevin O’Neill saying he fired a graduate manager for getting a technical foul in today’s game.
“”That’s on me, and that will be rectified – it already has been – he’s gone,” O’Neill said.
