The last three ADs made poor decisions regarding the hiring and firing of head coaches. We blamed these decisions on their lack of administrative and leadership experience. However, we were optimistic that Mr. Bohn, who has good sports administrative experience, to make the right decision and find and hire a championship-caliber coach for the program. However, by keeping the current head football coach the new AD started his tenure with a highly unpopular, unwise decision. The three problems that will come knocking at his door will be: (1) The current football program has lost the USC fan base, (2) The current coach has lost the top recruits and is almost last in Pac12 in recruiting, and (3) The tremendous loss in ticket sale and TV contracts next year will be hard to swallow for the University administration. In addition, the season will start with a game against Alabama and the anticipated humiliating defeat in front of the national audience will be very embarrassing for the program. It is so plain and obvious that the current football program has serious flaws in player development, practice regime, strength and conditioning, player motivation, game adjustment, and fundamental coaching philosophy and approach. I am positive that fans are shocked, bewildered, and highly disappointed by this action. LR4TROY and 84Trojan like this.
