The Pac-12 coaches pick the conference’s coach of the year. Ponder for a minute what they did yesterday: USC beat Stanford twice and they still chose Cardinal coach David Shaw as coach of the year.
Obviously, the coaches felt USC had the most talent and winning the Pac-12 was simply doing what the Trojans were supposed to do. You can bet the league’s coaches also heard some of the dissension that came from the coaching staff this season.
And those same Pac-12 coaches watched film of USC failing to pass the eye test on a weekly basis, having 10 men on the field for extra points (even on the last TD of the Pac-12 title game) and all the other clownish plays that happened this season.
Add it all up and Shaw becomes Coach of the Year.
