Arnett was the defensive coordinator at San Diego State and seen as a potential candidate at USC. Arnett was hired by Syracuse on Jan. 11. At this rate, college programs might want to take a page from the NBA and start offering 10-day contracts to assistants. CrownoftheValley, AMLTrojan, sctrojan2006 and 4 others like this.
