USC Says It Did Not Contact Tony Dungy Or Jack Del Rio

Today’s comments by Tony Dungy prompted USC athletic director Pat Haden to issue a statement that false representatives are reaching out to coaching candidates, including Dungy and Denver Broncos assistant Jack Del Rio.
“Tony’s discussion on the radio today of being contacted by USC was a complete surprise to us,” Haden said. “So were the calls made to the Broncos. I can assure you no authorized representative of USC or our athletic department made these calls.
“As I said last week, we will not comment on every name that comes out. It would be a disservice to our players and coaches, who are devoting everything they have into the remainder of our season. We have a head coach right now in Ed Orgeron. We have not offered the job to anyone.”

    It’s like when the QB says he turned down the hottest girl in school for a date when she didn’t even ask him. These people try to get out there ahead of the story when there is no story. Busted by Haden, chumps!

      Dungy got flat out played – foolish probably “paul ‘goat boy’ hackett” looking for a lovah who won’t ‘klintonska’ his covah n’est pas?

        Are you off your meds?

    There were 42 comments on this blog regarding SC allegedly contacting Dungy,which it turns out was a mirage.

    What a fine use of the posters’ time

    Now, perhaps we should give Coach Org a chance to show he is the one SC should choose.

    • sureshot32

      I like Coach O a lot, but he is definitely not the one they should choose to lead the program in the coming years. I say keep Orgeron on as the d-line coach and recruiting coordinator and continue giving him loads of money. He’s great at those two things, but he’s not cut out to be the head coach of USC.

      Let’s not be silly now. It should be Petersen or Sumlin. Those are the only two names that Haden should be focused on at this point.

      • Hey SUC’s

        What should Haden do if P and S decline SUC’s invitation?

        • rusoviet

          Meet you at Griff’s for your ‘oil change’….”Oh no not there you savage….ohhhh stop….. nooo Paul Hackett aka ‘goat boy’ will be envious…what’s that? You’re ‘paul hackett aka goat boy’ (see above)…then sail on sailor!

          • Hey SUC’s

            Comrade, you need to cut back your sugar intake. Your acting like the SUC FB team. All motor, no score.

          • USConqueror1

            So weird.

        • TrojanFamily

          He’d need to let them know that USC is the one who would like to talk about the job, rather than this fictional “SUC.”. I doubt coaches as intelligent as Sumlin and Petersen would repeat a six year old’s anagram and consider it a fresh take.

          • Hey SUC’s

            Hey, Commandant Depp is back online.

        • Arturo

          So your internet name is based on the name of your arch nemesis/conqueror while at the same time showing an unhealthy obsession by posting continuously on their blog? Pathetic troll.

          • Hey SUC’s

            Artie baby, it’s not unhealthy to post on this blog. It’s fun, because half-wits such as yourself, can’t stand the truth. SUC has a lousy FB team and the only thing they own is the LA Memorial Crypt. AZ 38 – the Ogre 17. Artie you’re backing a major loser.

  • Jj Griffiths

    It obviously media trying to get a scoop by gauging interest under the guise of representing a school. “uh, im a representative of a guy who knows a guy who is helping Pat Haden…can I talk to Tony Dungy please? Yes!!??? OMG!.. i mean, uh…sure, i’ll hold.”

  • TrojanConquest

    I guess it was good that Dungy said something so they can stop these clowns, but I said by my earlier comment that when contacted in this fashion, it’s not cool to discuss with the media.

    • gotroy22

      Why is the first impulse of rah rahs to cover up, hide , deny or lie in the name of USC? Pat Haden has no credibility after proclaiming he was 150% behind Kiffin and then canning him. He willl say or do anything.

  • Paul Hackett

    I was contacted about the opening as well.

    • rusoviet

      Then again you’re gay as a goat! Pray tell what ‘gender’ art thou?

      • Paul Hackett

        Didn’t know goats were gay Rusoviet. Then again, never really thought of a goat that way. You need a girlfriend Sport.

        • rusoviet

          Hmm well Guess you’re not ‘comminus cabra’….you’re the one in need of something that and your ‘sybill’ bucket and ‘siam – latino’ – must be a drag figuring which one to switch to huh boyo?

          BTW brooklyn is tied with ATL and TB took down the beanboys – lovin it!

  • Paul Hackett

    ["As I said last week, we will not comment on every name that comes out." - Patrick Capper Haden]

    Isn’t that exactly what The Capper is doing by replying to Dungy’s comments?

    • sureshot32

      Every ≠ One

      Just thought I’d clear that up for you.

  • rusoviet

    Dungy’s the fool here – at a minimum he should have vetted this contact rather than let such as ‘Paul Hackett’ (below) attempt to get his manhood back.

    • gotroy22

      Tony Dungy has more integrity than Pat Haden.

  • Bruin 34

    Lmao! Haden is a joke! Trying to put all the attention on SUC! No one wants the SUC job! Making up stories. Funny to see how SUC is now the laughing stock of college football. Y’all should hire Carroll again so you can cheat on!!! Onward Traveler! Strap a ball to his satchel and tell him to run to the end zone! Your best bet at this point! Lmao!

    • TrojanFamily

      Calm down Francis. The only thing more excessive than your use of exclamation points is your unhealthy obsession with all things Trojan. Go to the UCLA site, enjoy the rare good year for UCLA athletics, and send Dan Guerrero a few bucks so they can stop begging for donations on AM radio. Clap 8 times and repeat “there’s no place like home” and you too can stumble into Diddy Reese tonight.

      • Bruin 34

        All things Torjan? You meanLl things bottom of the barreland Pac? You all only win with cheaters! Funny how your most successful run for 7 years was all done by CheatCarroll. Chin forever!

      • David Stewart

        Bravo!

  • SaferInWestwood

    On the next episode of CATFISH SC finds out Hadden doesn’t know who he really offered, LMAO!!!!

    • TrojanFamily

      Hadden huh?

      • SaferInWestwood

        Yeah you don’t know who i’m talking about, you wish you didn’t know who I was talking about just like you wish you guys weren’t in last place 0-2… .

        • Arturo

          How’s your stupid name sound to the Bruin players who have family that live in the inner city? Your best player btw. What a snob.

          • SaferInWestwood

            Uuh how is it supposed to sound genius, so when does having players families that live in Compton, Inglewood, Carson ect.. make it any more safe?? Which player would you be talking about, I am sure you won’t hear them say “we own the police”!?!?!

          • https://www.facebook.com/charles.bucket.3 Charlie Bucket

            Safer, that was a perfectly placed kick to Arturo’s crotch!!!

            and well deserved i might add!!

            these trOXans are so GROUCHY these days!! what with the football team in the toilet and now another public humiliation for Bounce Pass Hadden!!!!!

    • Bruin 34

      Ha Ha!

  • Trojan Hoarse

    I’d like to see Scotties phone records on the day each of these calls were allegedly made….so, do you have an alibi, Wolfie?.

  • Arturo

    Hey Tony, I am a representative of PeMex that would like to sell you some stock.

  • Helen

    Rope a dope.

  • https://www.facebook.com/charles.bucket.3 Charlie Bucket

    now what goin’ on down there???
    Yoy! and DOUBLE yoy!!!

    ANOTHER PUBLIC HUMILIATION FOR BOUNCE PASS HADDEN!!!
    Limbo U keeps taking their game down to a whole ‘nother lower level!!!

  • ThaiMex

    Lemme see…..Haden denies reaching out to Dungy (Haden also said he was 100% behind Kiffie and Ogie….so does that work out to 50/50 or 200%?), just like Goat Boy denied any knowledge of DEFLATED BALLS, just like Floyd denied the MONEY thing to Mayo, just like O’Neill denied he had a drinking problem, just like O.J. Denied killing those people, just like Reggie denied receiving money. Seems like all U Stupid Clowns are in DENIAL and are simply, LIARS.
    LIE ON Torgans!

  • B.Miller

    Whom ever is making the calls.. Are making quality decisions to reach out to the right people..
    And not trying to contact the bums at FUCLA!
