An annoying phrase I’m seeing lately on twitter and elsewhere occurs whenever a recruit commits to USC or elsewhere. Someone inevitably remarks that the coach or coaches are “doing work.”
Really? They’re working? I thought USC paid some of its football assistant coaches seven figures to play basketball at lunch time. They actually do their jobs? If a recruit commits to USC, a coach is doing what he is expected to do: Get athletes.
It’s not worth a pat on the head that isn’t even logical. What happens when a recruit goes to another school? Is the assistant “not doing work?”
