Thursday Whispers: What Is Lynn Swann Doing?
Remember this famous statement way back in November from Lynn Swann?
“We acknowledge and understand our deficiencies in areas that include culture, discipline, schemes, personnel and staff. We agree that changes need to be made, and they will.”
So what has Swann done since then? Three fired assistant coaches? Big deal.
Is that supposed to fix USC football?
What about Clancy Pendergast? What about John Baxter? What about strength and conditioning?
If you want answers to those questions, you probably should head to Wilshire Country Club instead of Heritage Hall.
Just don’t ask him for an autograph. When Swann was inducted into the Rose Bowl Hall of Fame in 2013, several of the attendees who work every year at the New Year’s Day game wanted an autograph. Swann refused.
Maybe they should have asked Swann how he made the Hall of Fame. He caught 11 passes for 155 yards and one touchdown in two Rose Bowls. Good stats but not exactly the greatest for making a Hall of Fame.
