USC Morning Buzz: Steve Sarkisian Staff Update

Steve Sarkisian said Baltimore Ravens assistant coach Todd Washington will not be coming to USC, which means someone else will coach the offensive line.

USC is still trying to negotiate a buyout with Washington for defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox. The Trojans want to pay less than the $1 million stated in Wilcox’s contract. An announcement on his status will probably be made after the Huskies play in the Fight Hunger Bowl.

      Why do you say Southern Cal instead of USC?

      • Toejam For Life

        Because USC stands for Santa Clara or South Carolina. Southern Cal is a put down! Anyways it is SuC, not Southern Cal!

          Who asked you?

          Ignorance… i guess that’s why USC sued Southern Carolina and won…. Jackwagon….USC, SoCal or Southern Cal… everyone in the country knows who we are and what we’ve accomplished.

        Maybe he’s an elderly fan. In the 1960s and 70s our card stunt spellout said “Southern Cal”.

      • weisberg

        Southern Cal not USC.

        • Jethro G Sabbath

          Great answer

    • ignore Jezro, he is onto some new conspiracy theory……he also believes in Ancient Aliens, the Chupacabra and thinks OJ was framed.

        Is this the example you want to set, telling lies about people?

  • Fred Sampson

    I’m still waiting for somebody to explain the hype about Justin Wilcox ……….when you sign 5 star recruits every single year most competant defensive coordinators can coordinate that team sucessfully .

    • FightON

      The real question is: how would Justin Wilcox handle being forced to make so few substitutions? What did USC really have on defense – how many substitutions could they actually make?

      We saw how Clancy handled it and I thought he did well in most of the games.

      • FMUSC81

        I agree on this one… Keep CP

    Clancy’s defense was a major improvement over last year. Looked good on Saturday and Clancy has NFL experience. Hard to see Wilcox being an improvement. Why make the change?

      Sark needs to clean house period!! ANYONE’s DEFENSE would have been a major improvement
      did anyone notice everything looked much better when Montague and junior left?? HELLO!!!

      • sureshot32

        Anyone’s defense may have been an improvement, but not anyone’s defense would have improved so dramatically. Pendergast does some excellent things, and I for one am hoping he gets a chance to improve on it in year 2.

        • Walt Hazzard

          Did you watch the sucla game? I think he did some good things and for that I thank him. He is by no means irreplaceable. Sark needs to clean house and make his own staff

            And ASU put 62 on us. We can do better.

    If UW doesn’t negotiate for a substantial bargain, I say we pay the full price the day BEFORE their bowl game and leave running around trying to figure out who their coach is on game day.
