USC Morning Buzz

More than a few coaches are raising eyebrows at the idea USC is offering San Diego State assistant coach Tony Bland $250,000 to join Andy Enfield’s coaching staff. He might be a great hire but right now he is still fairly unproven.

“What’s he done at this point to merit that much money,” a college head coach asked?

Bland is referred to as San Diego State’s “lead recruiter” but has been in the position for only two years and five of the Aztecs’ top six scorers are juniors or seniors. Like I said, it might be a terrific addition. And if he takes the job, he will get plenty of chances to deliver recruits.

    Kick back. $250k is nothing for the donors. The admin”s got more.

    throwing money at a problem is always a good idea… Just ask Kiffin.

    $250k? Isn’t that the difference in what O’Neil got and Enfield is getting?

    He’s BLACK, he’s got TATS, he’s from the HOOD, what’s not to like ?

    Sort of early to even think about it, let alone raise doubts. In contrast to CFB, USC is starting from a disadvantaged position on the CBB totem pole.

    Let Enfield have his honeymoon, while he takes a whack at it. He’s young, energetic, educated, has enjoyed some success in two fields, and in attracting his wife. There will still be plenty of time to complain two or three years in the future.

    Sounds like Renfield will throw money at the first person who takes his call.
