New offensive line coach Mike Summers is the son-in-law of former Kentucky basketball coach Joe B. Hall, who won a national title in 1978. When USC coach Bob Boyd resigned in 1979, Trojans athletic director Dick Perry tried to hire Hall.
When Hall informed Perry how much money it would require to hire him, Perry quickly moved on.
“He reminded me (that USC wanted to hire him when I got hired),” Summer said.
Let’s see if money becomes an issue during USC’s current basketball coaching search.
