It increasingly looks like current special teams coach John Baxter will not be retained by Steve Sarkisian. A couple sources tell me USC would like to keep Baxter in an academic role if he does not leave for another coaching role.
Meanwhile, Washington defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox is supposed to coach at Friday’s bowl practice for the Huskies. He still looks most likely to end up at USC as soon as his buyout and status with the Huskies gets resolved.
And finally, did anyone note that the likely offensive line coach, Baltimore Ravens assistant Todd Washington, is not the Ravens’ offensive line coach but the “assistant” offensive line coach. Andy Moeller is the Ravens’ offensive line coach.
That’s odd when you are USC and always told the school is getting one of the best coaching staffs in America.
