Polamalu Goes Out With A Recruiting Kudo

Before he was fired, assistant coach Kennedy Polamalu was named one of the top recruiters in the Pac-12 by Rivals.com.

Here’s the excerpt. “Buzz: Polamalu was the man responsible for USC’s running back haul, which was comprised of Ty Isaac and Justin Davis. Neither play was in his assigned recruiting region, but he was a big part of sealing the deal with both. Polamalu was also instrumental in getting a commitment from and retaining the top player in California, Su’a Cravens.”

    Confirms Pola connects with running backs, but not necessarily a great Offensive Coord. If Kiffin actually wants an OC.

      HE WASN’T THE OC !! SH!t, GET THAT THROUGH YOUR HEAD ALREADY. Kiffin is the OC and will always be the OC, HE’S THE PROBLEM !!!

        The offensive line failed to consistently open up holes for the RBs which was literally non-existent the start of the last 2-seasons. Kiffin was seeking Oregon State’s O-line position coach. Come on… if the running game was working, even Kiffin would have used the running game more…

        He had the title so he should have had some responsibility beyond the running backs, maybe that’s why Kiffin had to do it all.

          should have, but didn’t. He commented as such during the season.

    He was the guy recruiting Adoree Jackson, among others, for the 2014 class. Kiffin is the gift that just keeps on giving to UCLA fans!

    I still dont see the problem with KP? I have not heard or read anything about why they parted. OR if Kiffin even has a plan for a replacement. Im just not confident in any of Kiffin’s decisions..

      Kiffin doesn’t seem to anticipate consequences to his actions. I’m in favor of change, and these changes may work out fine, but they have not been orchestrated to create the impression that he’s on top of things.

      For the fans, it’s annoying, but if it ends OK, so what? For the players, it undermines morale, and that’s not so good. You want them training hard, excited about Spring practice, and confident that they will be expertly coached, and can improve and succeed. How could they feel that right now?

    and when i think that it’s gotten to the bottom…it get worse…
