In Honor Of Paul Hackett


I made a stop in Orinda, Calif., after the game in honor of former USC coach Paul Hackett, who grew up here. The Bay Area is also where former coaches John Robinson and Pete Carroll also grew up. But only Hackett is from the East Bay.

    Coach Hackett’s detractors should give him credit for being a great quarterback coach for SC and a good man. The improvement of his first SC quarterback, Vince Evans, from 1975 to 1976 was tremendous and his third quarterback, Paul McDonald elevated the standard for USC quarterbacks into the modern era.

    Didn’t Hackett coach up Carson Palmer as well? Like you know who, just not Head Coach material.

    Sounds like Scottie made a wrong turn.
