KSR reporting Kevin O'neill to Southern Cal
They passed on Gillispie ..... (as Homer Simpson would say) DOH!
O'Neill's last college outing was at Arizona where he was interim coach during Lute Olsen's leave of absence. This past year he has been with the Memphis Grizzlies. OJ Mayo also was with the Grizzlies this year ... is there a connection there??
O'Neill: "I'm very excited about this opportunity to coach at such a great institution as USC, with its tremendous athletic and academic tradition," he said in the statement.
He may want to choose his words a litlle more carefully in the future with that reference to "academic tradition".
