No NCAA Sanctions On Staff Size

USC might have 67 healthy scholarship players but the Trojans are hardly lean-and-mean when it comes to the football staff. The current staff boasts four defensive administrative assistants plus a graduate-assistant coach. The offense includes two administrative assistants plus a graudate-assistant coach.

There are four assistant strength coaches not including the head strength coach, Ivan Lewis. And then there are the director of player personnel, director of football operations, director of football scouting, assistant director of football operations and recruiting analyst.

It might be the biggest staff in the nation. If you don’t believe it, check out the football media guide page 18.

    Not sure what your point is Scottie, but I consider having a large staff a positive thing.

    Well considering the ‘all you can eat’ 24/7 buffet why wouldn’t they? Just kidding but something is drawing that number of coaches and I’d say it is being able to claim years from now that “…I worked for USC the first year of Sark’s return after Kiffin and we….”

    It is called player development.

    Last year you ragged on Kiffin(who didn’t) about his 3 man defensive staff. This year it is just the opposite and yet you continue to kick and rip.

    It might just be the biggest staff in the history of all football. If you don’t believe, check it out Scottie. Oh, I forgot. Research ain’t your thang. Have a muffin and put on a dirty old sweatshirt. You’re almost done for the day. Whew.
