Monday Whispers: Are USC Changes Coming?
I hear people throughout Heritage Hall are talking about possible changes coming.
The only question is who might be leaving?
Some insiders swore over the weekend that senior associate athletic director Steve Lopes is on thin ice.
They believe former athletic director Pat Haden and current A.D. Lynn Swann are putting any responsibility for the College Admissions Scandal on Lopes.
It’s clear the FBI and U.S. attorneys are still conducting an investigation. We hear Rick Carr, recently let go as USC director of security, spoke to the FBI. That probably made some higher-ups in the athletic dept. nervous. Actually, we hear Swann asked Carr why the FBI wanted to talk to him?
And don’t forget Donna Helnel needs to implicate someone to get her punishment reduced.
It all creates a toxic atmosphere inside Heritage Hall as new president Carol Folt starts working today.
By the way, I know about a dozen people who are emailing Folt today with complaints about Swann.
