This is comical. I wonder what the USC fans who were planning their championship parades will say to this. For a supposedly top-tier university with a top-tier athletic department, USC athletics has been a clown show for a while.
And, the piling on begins. This is a column by Bill Plaschke, who can be predicted to jump in immediately at a time like this with an column like this:
And, this column appeared in The Athletic. Sadly, it has a paywall, but these two snippets are great:
Bohn is out, with university president Carol Folt announcing Friday she has accepted his resignation “effective today.” Of course, when someone leaves a job of their own volition, they do so immediately and announce it on a Friday afternoon.
Folt mentioned that in preparation for moving to the Big Ten, USC “conducted a thorough review of the athletics department, including its operations, culture, and strategy.” That’s a totally normal thing to do when somebody’s job is safe.
