What does Mick Haley’s firing tell us about Lynn Swann? It might just be that he listens to his underlings who directly supervise sports like women’s volleyball. Or maybe he believes you either win national titles or should be replaced in Olympic sports.
But it also applies to football (and to a lesser extent, basketball). That is why even though USC lost only two games through October, there was plenty of speculation that one-or-two more losses could spell big trouble for Clay Helton.
Swann said Helton is returning after the Pac-12 title game. But just how secure Helton’s position is remains a question if USC starts to lose a few games next season.
