I previously mentioned any self-respecting defensive coordinator would want to bring in his own people and it looks like Clancy Pendergast is doing that.
But what does this say about last year’s defensive staff? Monte Kiffin was nudged out. Scottie Hazelton would probably not be back if Nevada didn’t hire him (doubtful Pendergast wanted someone from North Dakota State. Or was it South Dakota State?). And now Marvin Sanders is out.
On the other hand, can you imagine Oregon doing this to its staff? No way. The Ducks have a good staff and continuity. USC apparently did not.
