USC Coaching Staff List

Here’s the current makeup of the coaching staff:

Wide receivers: Tee Martin; Running backs: Johnny Nansen; Defensive backs: Keith Heyward; Linebackers: Peter Sirmon.

Pending: Justin Wilcox (defensive coordinator); Tosh Lupoi (defensive line).

Nansen also coached defensive line at Washington and might have to do it for the bowl game because Ed Orgeron’s mentor, Pete Jenkins, also left the staff.

    Gotta love how SUCLA finally beats SC, and the only news is SC, its coach, his staff, and how they will be implementing a fast-pace offense.

    Talk about having your great victory watered down and quickly becoming second page news.

    No wonder SUCLA hates SC

    • realtrojan

      And that’s another evidence there’s no real rivalry between USC and fUCLA. It’s simply a “crosstown” rivalry, which has been created to generate some pocket money for the local media.

      • FightOn

        This. Why are UCLA fans so proud of their one national championship…in 1954…that they had to share….?

        • Stu Azole

          I’m proud of my school’s recent 35-14 THRASHING of the once-mighty Troxans. That’s as far back as THE MIGHTY BRUINS need to look, if they look back at all. BOOM!

    • jetman624

      Everyone with a brain knows this win gets an asterisk with SC having half the roster it normally would.

      Just let them enjoy it a little while longer, they will be back to the losing end of double digit drubbings and 50-0 shutouts soon enough…

      • Stu Azole

        er, yeah guy.

        It’s cute (and entertaining) to see you guys trying to make each other feel better with lies and

          • jetman624

            Its saddening to imagine how pathetic and unfulfilled your lives must be to constantly be lurking on your rivals board.

            Jealous much?

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

            HAH! Bruins on here constantly kicking in the trOXans crotches and you say it’s due to jealousy???? HAWR-HAWR!!

            when Clubber Lang pummels Balboa in III, you didn’t hear Rocky cry: “stop being so jealous!!!”

          • jetman624

            And yet here you are, carrying on with nothing better to do, seething with jealousy and panic…

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

            well then stop making me so jealous!!! your kicked in crotch is at stake!!

          • TrojanFamily

            no, Rocky kicked the living Bucket out of Clubber Lang, just like what happens to you every time you attempt to make a pop culture reference.

            Please watch the end of a movie once.

          • Stu Azole

            jealous of what exactly? Crippling NCAA sanctions? Sark as your coach? 35-14? Klemm denying you, again? Remind me again what there is to be jealous about right now?

          • jetman624

            We could start with the fact that UCLA needed the most unjust and crippling sanction in NCAA history to even begin to make a dent on our hold on the city. A recent 50-0 drubbing you will only ever be on the receiving end of, ever. The fact that despite the sanctions, we have managed to go without a losing season, which more than you have been able to do with a full roster until recently.

            You know what there is to be jealous of– playing the fool isn’t a good look on you…

          • Stu Azole

            LOL. You could start there, or you could realize that UCLA’s success has had nothing to do with USC’s fall, but rather, UCLA’s rise. Mora is changing UCLA football the way Pete did for SC a decade ago. But if it makes you feel fuzzy inside to think that all this will go away in a year, then by all means, go for it. Just remember, as much as the 2000′s happened to UCLA, the 1990′s happened to USC.

          • jetman624

            And there is that ugly jealousy, rearing its ugly head– lusting after the program PETE built.

            LOL, you guys are all a joke…

          • UCLA Owns the Rose Bowl

            The conquering army isn’t jealous of the defeated enemy, jetman… That’s just illogical. I believe the jealousy, however, is flowing the other way…

          • jetman624

            A conquering army? Dear god, now I have heard it all. 2 wins and now you are a CONQUERING ARMY…

            You do realize if you won 17 straight years in a row you would only then be tied with USC in series wins, right?

            Back to reality there buddy…

          • ThaiMex

            Jealous because Caleb DROPPED J.R.( to his knees!) with a single punch.
            Fit UN indeed!

      • ProbationU

        Asterisk? Weren’t these the same guttly, little Trojans that had just beaten Stanford and the fans stormed the field like they had won a NC?

        How come your great Leonard Williams, one of the 5 greatest Trojan players in history was kept out of the backfield by a 3rd string Bruin offensive lineman?

        Frankly, would rather have the asterisk than a vacated win. There is one simple reason you are shorthanded….and you know the answer.

        Now you are trying to buy our OL coach like you tried to buy our baseball. coach. If you can’t beat them, try to buy them. The Trojan way.

        • FightOn

          Legitimate question: if you know nothing about the game of football, why are you posting on a football board? No, I’m seriously asking you this question.

          And don’t reply back with some crap about how you played in HS or have studied the game. If you cannot understand how you can have a crappy offensive line but use the intermediate game and take advantage of a team that is not subbing and is blowing man coverage assignments, then you really need to be a fan of the other football.

          Are you still harping about cheating? I still find it funny that you guys keep hiring our leftovers. Too bad it won’t help you much – our entire offensive book looks like it’ll be changing.

          • Stu Azole

            this all sounds like “wahhh, we don’t have enough players” even though the same team beat Furd just a few weeks prior. Haha.

          • ProbationU

            We aren’t harping about cheating. You guys are harping about restrictions. That came from the cheating and the fact that Garrett handled things like a buffoon.

            We ran the same offense against ASU and they managed 9 sacks against us. Stanford played good D against us. SC didn’t. Maybe you just got outcoached.

          Problem is westside pali high – you’ve dropped three to Stanford….hmmm Stanford…..three losses…. uh oh – another loss to OR a comin’ next year….why? Mark Wahlberg’s doppleganger asking “…who the *&^% let this happen??!! Fire the OF line coach now! Ohhh nooo not that..don;t you dare you monster…stop it….give me obamskacare now….what’s that?

    • Stu Azole

      LOL. Where are you reading this “news”? The only news is that Mora is staying, Klemm said no to the Troxans, AGAIN, and Pola is now a Bruin! Oh, and 35-14. That’s the news people are reading. The rest is just a joke.

  • Joe Blow

    Boy, O is an idiot. Leaving a $90K a month job like a crybaby. And his old pal leaves too. Would you hire him to be a HC? I wouldn’t.

    • jetman624

      His emotional, competitive nature did not serve him well in this instance…

      • Joe Blow

        Bet his wife is happy.

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

      CEO was a big fat crying sissy!! just like Kiff and just like Khardasian!!!

      and come to think of it, so are trOXan players!!

      when Mora pounded on the trOXan locker room door and shouted, “WE OWN THIS TOWN!!” the trOXans huddled inside crying and peeeeing their girdles!!!

      thats the FACTS JACK!!!

      • Joe Blow

        Good luck in the National Championship Game.

        • Clen Jim

          Coach O did the right thing. Come On Man! Get passed over twice. what would you do..?? And Championships?? Your as bad as Notre Dame fan talking about the Four Horsemen.. Move forward not back Son..

          • Joe Blow

            Championships???? Yours was 1954! Ours was 2005.
            Clem, you really think it made sense to leave a job that pays $90,000 month? A MONTH? I sure as heck wouldn’t have stormed out. You may be that dumb, but I’m not.

          • Stu Azole

            wah… living in the PAST! 35-14 is TODAY! WEEEEE!

          • Joe Blow

            DicKwad, TODAY is 0-0.

            You’re living in the past 35-14!

            SWEEEEEEET!

          • Stu Azole

            Haha, now THAT’s funny! 35-14 is last weekend, next weekend and next year. Until we beat you clowns again next November!

          • Joe Blow

            Go ahead and live in the PAST.

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

    Simply more evidence UCLA OWNS THIS TOWN!!! (You know, just like Mora yelled outside your locker room. While your players quietly peeked into their girdles)

    WELCOME KENNEDY!!! the ONE coach trOXans spoke well of!!! The ultimate humiliating kick to the CROTCH!!! Going over to the enemy!!!

    When Mora kicks a crotch, it stays kicked!!!

    • FIGHTONtoVICTORY

      The weird part is that after he left, USC had the most successful rushing in YEARS. No big ding to the program.

      • Stu Azole

        yes, his recruiting and prior coaching had nothing to do with that…

        • FIGHTONtoVICTORY

          that’s fine. The new guy has produced a 1000 yd-rusher each of the last 4 years.

          • Stu Azole

            That’s AMAZING…. considering he’s only been the RB coach for a year.

      • FightOn

        Bruins still aren’t talking about Pola being OC during the 7-6 2012 season. I guess they’ll blame Kiffin instead.

        • Stu Azole

          why would we? He didn’t call any plays – that was all Kiff. They gave him the title so he’d stick around, but even after that, he couldn’t stomach working for Kiffen!

      • UCLA Owns the Rose Bowl

        You lost on Klemm too. And Peterson. And 35-14. Tough, tough week.

  • B.Miller

    kids coaching kids.. Where is the experience? I am not impressed at all with these young coaching choices.. Great for recruiting, but having guys who have coached at college and NFL level would be nice.
    At least Sark added a DB Coach! Weew!

    • UCLA Owns the Rose Bowl

      NFL-experience coaches like over at UCLA. Nice try to steal Klemm. A swing and a miss–again!

      • B.Miller

        Who? If USC wanted him they could get them..
        Money talks kid

        • UCLA Owns the Rose Bowl

          Yes, I’m a troll, but that’s inaccurate. Check the news coverage, B: Sark put more money on the table for Klemm, who turned it down. Sark and Haden went after him hard. Ask your friends in HH; they’ll verify (I asked mine.)

          • B.Miller

            HA! Cool.. It is what it is then..

  • ThaiMex

    Pete left because he needed a NAP. I seem to recall he was a little older than dirt, but one heck of a nice guy and the players liked the fact he was so easy to relate to.
    fit UN!
