USC Morning Buzz: A Little Clarification On Tim Drevno

DREVNOIf you read the USC press release last night, it stated new offensive line coach Tim Drevno “has been Jim Harbaugh’’s offensive line coach for 9 years at 3 stops.”

So why would he leave if he was the San Francisco 49ers’ offensive line coach? Well, maybe it becomes clearer when you realize he is actually the “co-offensive line coach” with Mike Solari.

So Drevno will now actually be solely in charge of coaching an offensive line. That makes a little more sense to leave Harbaugh and join Steve Sarkisian at USC.

    What does this have to do with Lane Kiffin or James Franklin?

  • Booyakasha

    Whatever. Harbaugh has a good coaching staff as evidenced by his team’s performances at Stanford and the 49ers. The Harbaugh coaching tree has performed much better than the Pete Carroll coaching tree. So I think this hire might work out. All great SC teams have had great O lines. Let’s run the ball and win some games.

    Makes sense.

    What does not make sense is putting the SUCLA-Virginia Tech football game on the tube on a work day at 11 a.m

    I’ll bet dollars to donuts that SC-Fresno St will get a higher t.v. rating than this Virginia Tech game, except in the state of Virginia..

      Hate to say it, but we were in the same time slot when we got beat there. It’s a S H ! % Bowl and get the right time slot. BTW, it’s on channel 2! Ha ha. All the big bowls are now on ESPN.

      • Saul Goodman

        Correction: all the big, small, great, and crap bowls are on ESPN. I believe only the Sun and Cotton are not on ESPN/ABC

          Thanks Guudman

      The Sun Bowl is always on in the afternoon on New Years Eve. Some of us take at least half the day off today if not all day.

    A little clarification that Scotty needed cause his Jim Harbaugh crush took a hit when we got one of his coaches. Guess Scotty will have to take down that poster in his room of Harbaugh and replace with Jim Mora


    It is killing Wolf that he knows SC just made a Great Hire.
    Wilcox and Tui are also very welcome.
    Hey Wolf- call Petros- I am sure on his show he can validate your feelings about how screwed up SC is, and why quality coaches don’t want that gig

    Hey Wolfie– I saw Lane Kiffin at Trader Joes in Manhattan Beach!

    • Jethro G Sabbath

      I saw Lane at Dietrich’s in Manhattan Beach.

      • Brian

        Screw the new coaches…your sighting of Kiffin deserves a new post on this blog.

      • Charlie Bucket

        Gaaaaawd! Let it go, Jezro!!! Stop beating a dead horse!!! Kiff’s not here no more!!!!

        • Jethro G Sabbath

          I think this one might have sailed over your head

    Wow. Is there a curse? SC lost in the Pac 12 to WSU & ASU. Both LOST their bowl game. Hope it doesn’t happen to (f) ucla

    • Golden Trojan

      The golden domers won, but I always love to see the bRuins lose. It seems who ever the Pac 12 sends to the Holiday Bowl, they aren’t very motivated, Sun Bowl as well.

      • Joe Blow

        I referenced Pac 12.

        • Golden Trojan

          Got It.

      • FightON

        ND game was terrible. They’ll be happy to get the star QB back.

  • FMUSC81

    Great hire!!!!

  • Charlie Bucket

    GREAT INVESTIGATIVE journalism, wolfman!!!

    Your explanation clarifies what otherwise looked like a dumbbell decision to leave the great Harbaugh for a sinking ship!! (I still think it’s dumb, though)

  • Toejam For Life

    Sarkiffen is interviewing the co-defensive line coach at St Mary’s High School for girls for that opening!

    UCLA 42 – 12, JBlows Oops.. .HA!

      Congrats on beating a non ranked team with cheap shots.
