In Kliff Kingsbury fiasco, USC’s Lynn Swann again shows inexperience as athletic director – LA Times
Kliff Kingsbury said the USC job was “calling my name.” He said the USC job “is where I wanted to be.” Asked whether he was at USC to stay, he said, “That’s the plan.” Asked about the NFL, he said, “I haven’t even thought about it, honestly.” Kingsbury said these things about two weeks ago in an interview with ESPN’s Shelley Smith. Their conversation took place about two weeks after he was hired as USC’s offensive coordinator and the team’s most important offseason acquisition.

But, perhaps worse, it makes the USC athletic department look like fools.
