USC East

Former USC men’s volleyball coach Bill Ferguson has been hired as a women’s volleyball assistant coach at Cal State Los Angeles. Maybe I should start keeping a list of former USC coaches that get hired by Mike Garrett at Cal State L.A.

Nikola Jovanovic Works Out With Denver Nuggets

NIKOLA.BALLUSC forward Nikola Jovanovic works out with the Denver Nuggets today. There are only five days before players must decide if they will withdraw from the draft.

“If I get a lot of interest, I’ll definitely (stay in the draft),” Jovanovic said this week.

But Jovanovic has another option: He could easily go to Europe and play pro basketball next year.

Why wouldn’t he return to USC? One coach at another school told me this week Jovanovic might worry USC coach Andy Enfield will feature Bennie Boatwright and Chimezie Metu more next season.

USC Morning Buzz: Another Graduation With Pete Carroll


Pete Carroll received an honorary degree last year from USC. And last week, he delivered the commencement address for the business school at the Galen Center. Note USC president Max Nikias taking a picture with his phone at the beginning.

Here’s a Carroll excerpt: “I got fired five times (before coming to USC). Imagine that. When I arrived here, they didn’t just receive me with open arms. The media was on my butt. The fans were on my butt. The students didn’t know what to make it. If there had been twitter, facebook . . . it would have been unbearable.”

USC Picture Of The Day

OREGON.COACHES

This is actually a picture of the Oregon coaching staff in 1967. Former USC coach John Robinson, former USC assistant/Cal and Arizona State coach Bruce Snyder and San Francisco 49ers coach George Seifert are all on the staff. Ask yourself what USC staff in the past 15 years could produce three “successful” head coaches. That means don’t try to say Lane Kiffin, Steve Sarkisian, Nick Holt and Ed Orgeron became head coaches.
