That seems to be the advice of a lot of basketball pundits right now and Marshall is in Los Angeles with Wichita State playing in the Elite Eight at Staples Center. But he’s told Yahoo Sports he turned down offers of $2 million at other schools.
“I’m not in search of anything,” Marshall said. “I’ve got a great life, great family, great community I live in, great school, great administration, great players. What more do I need? More money? That’s the only thing. We can obviously make runs in the NCAA tournament from Wichita State.”
Goestenkors took Duke to the national title game twice and was ACC coach of the year seven times. She resigned at Texas in 2012 and took last season off. Goestenkors and former USC women’s coach Cynthia Cooper are now the frontrunners for the job.
A few years ago, Peyton Manning showed up at USC one day to work out while in Los Angeles. He worked out with USC’s receivers on Cromwell Field and put on a display with his accuracy and arm strength.
Matt Barkley’s workout on the same field yesterday did not show the same arm strength or accuracy. NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock said Manning’s arm is not as strong as Joe Flacco but that Barkley needs to rely on the same things that make Manning successful.
“Peyton Manning is a great quarterback because of his timing, anticipation and accuracy,” Mayock said. “Those are the qualities Barkley can succeed with. It’s all about timing, anticipation and accuracy.”
Vandermade’s held an administrative title at USC for several years but actually helped coach the offensive line. He will join new Loyola coach Marvin Sanders, who was fired from USC when Clancy Pendergast took over as the Trojans’ defensive coordinator.
Former USC assistant Kennedy Polamalu, whose son is a quarterback at Loyola, is behind these coaching moves. There have been rumors Polamalu might also coach at Loyola.
During yesterday’s Pro Day, one problem was the new field turf that was installed at Cromwell Field over Christmas Break. The players slipped during the 40-yard dash and during some of the cone drills that required sharp cuts.
“It was not good at all,” defensive end Wes Horton said. “It got uneven.”
