Seahawks-USC Connection

The Seahawks are not retaining Lofa Tatupu as assistant linebackers coach. I didn’t even know he was on the staff. But they are making former USC tailback Chad Morton their running backs coach.

Is Anyone Watching USC Basketball?

USC is not a basketball school. The downside is the consistently low-attendance figures. The upside for a coach is that the program escapes scrutiny that schools like UCLA, Arizona or even Oregon face in the Pac-12.

For example, is anyone even discussing whether forward Chimezie Metu deserves any type of punishment for attempting to trip an Oregon player and following up with a slap on the back of another Oregon player that resulted in a flagrant foul?

The Pac-12 appears to be leaving it up to USC. That means Andy Enfield must decide. Will he do anything? USC plays UCLA on Saturday so there’s little incentive to bench Metu. And even less incentive when nobody cares. That’s the good part of coaching basketball at USC, from a coach’s perspective.

USC Morning Buzz: Quarterback Matt Corral Says He Picked School

Quarterback Matt Corral, who is committed to USC, said on twitter he found a “new home” after leaving Oaks Christian last week. He did not name the school and it’s not known if he picked a permanent destination or a school that he will use to merely finish out this year.

St. Bonaventure, Chaminade and Westlake are all schools that would likely welcome him. Meanwhile, I’ve heard the incident that caused Corral to leave involved a well-known student at Oaks Christian. That explains his comment, “I ran into problems at a school that is biased towards money.”

Another Chimezie Metu Update

Here’s what a Pac-12 spokesperson told me tonight about Chimezie Metu’s attempted trip of an Oregon player: “It was reviewed and has been addressed with USC.”

So it sounds like he will not be punished by the conference.

Chimezie Metu Update

The Pac-12 said it will review Chimezie Metu’s attempted trip of Oregon’s Chris Boucher as part of its weekly protocol. Whether that means there would be any type of penalty remains to be seen.
