Tim Floyd Wanted Back At USC By Some Boosters

Last week a USC megabooster met with school president Max Nikias and suggested former basketball coach Tim Floyd be rehired. Although Floyd was not found guilty of wrongdoing by the NCAA in the O.J. Mayo case, it is difficult to imagine the school bringing him back since he presided over the program during that period.

    They should switch it up a little and let Floyd be on the RECEIVING end of a paper bag full of cash.

  • Not a bad idea. I also like Alford.

    Makes absolutely no sense…..none…..

    If I remember correctly, Floyd chased recruits who usually only stayed 1-year, 2- at the most. His teams changed so much each year they always started slow the beginning of the season trying to get used to eachother. This was a pattern…

      Doesn’t anyone remember that in his last year if they didn’t win the Pac-10 Tournament, they would have never gone to the NCAAs?

      And the lack of discipline throughout that season. Short memories. But after O’Neill, even Henry Bibby looks like the answer.

      Floyd knew talent, that is for sure. But Floyd at a big time program will always catch the eye of NCAA compliance officers.

      It is too bad about Ryan Francis. He wasn’t killed, Floyd may have never had interested in Mayo, or Mayo may have never had interest in USC. Mayo, by the way, is the real bad guy in the whole sordid affair with the NCAA.

      Bush may have been greedy, but most of the worst of the violations were driven by his stepfather. Mayo, on the other hand, his greed was all of his own.

  • Bob Body is a huge fan of Tim Floyd, then again, Boyd is senile.

    I cannot imagine USC bringing back bagman Floyd. There are better choices out there, do a coaching search that actually involves searching and bring in a top coach, you can do it Traitor Pat.

    Oh and Pat, you’e going to have to do a search for a new baseball coach and football coach, like it or not. If you want to fund your precious women’s sports, you have to have the football money and with the way things are going, you won’t have the cash to fund women’s tiddlywinks.

    get someone with a winning record….it would be a nice change…

  • SC needs more sanctions.

  • old_trojan_93

    Why not? Presiding over a period that resulted in sanctions never stopped USC from brining back Robinson in the early-mid 1990’s. Plus, Floyd is not guilty of any wrong doing.
