Wednesday Whispers: About Kliff Kingsbury And USC Coaches
Now that Kliff Kingsbury is gone, I might as well reveal the coaches I referred to in an incident I wrote about previously and mentioned on the Petros and Money Show on Monday.
Here is what happened: Kingsbury was with some USC coaches in the McKay Center and the discussion turned to special teams coach John Baxter and offensive line coach Tim Drevno.
Kingsbury rolled his eyes over the way they are known for trying to kiss up to Clay Helton. He had already figured out the politics inside the McKay Center after just a couple weeks. It was a small incident but telling because it showed Kingsbury was not just keeping to himself or afraid to acknowledge some of the drama that goes on daily. If he stayed, he probably would have quickly tired of Baxter, who is adept at currying favor with Helton.
