We hear USC athletic director Pat Haden recently met with St. John Bosco basketball coach Derrick Taylor. The meeting’s purpose was to hear a high school coach give his views on who would be the best choice as a basketball coach for USC.
Kind of a unique way of going about finding a coach. Ironically, Bosco guard Isaac Hamilton is going to UTEP next season to play for Tim Floyd. Last month’s interview with Floyd was more of a courtesy, though, as Pitt’s Jamie Dixon remains the preferred choice.
