The men’s basketball coaching gig at USC is open after the Trojans fired Kevin O’Neill earlier this week. And normally, such an exclusive job would only be open to a handful of qualified candidates handpicked by the athletic director.
Nope. Not this gig.
Dear [USC Athletic Director Pat] Haden:
I realize I’m not a traditional candidate to become the next head coach for USC basketball, but I’m confident that once you review my application, you’ll see I can provide the new leadership for your program you seek. I have extensive, highly successful head coaching experience in several recurring daydreams, and I’m looking forward to making those into reality as a Trojan.
