If you are a high school coach planning to attend Saturday’s USC coaches’ clinic, be advised that 150,000 are projected to visit the campus this weekend for the L.A. Times Festival of Books. Why couldn’t the coaches’ clinic have been last weekend? Swim with Mike? Yeah, that took about 10 minutes of Steve Sarkisian’s time last Saturday.
A side note: One of the featured speakers is San Francisco 49ers assistant head coach Brad Seely, who will be portrayed as a Jim Harbaugh/Tim Drevno guy but had more ties to Pete Carroll. Ask him about how Pete Carroll wanted to hire him at USC. Seely worked with Carroll at North Carolina State, the New York Jets and New England Patriots.
