About the only news — aside from appearances by former head coach Pete Carroll and current head coach Lane Kiffin — to come out of USC’s hearings in front of the NCAA has involved their current running backs coach
Nothing specific, mind you, as the Trojans are very stridently adhering to a gag order put in place by the NCAA’s Committee on Infractions.
Because of the gag order, we’re left to ponder what it means that RB coach Todd McNair was, as the Los Angeles Times put it, grilled for two of the scheduled three days regarding his knowledge of the Reggie Bush “situation”. What was said by McNair to the committee members will likely go a long way toward determining what, if any, sanctions are handed down.
McNair is rumored to have — at the very least — some knowledge of the illegal benefits.that were allegedly given to the former USC back and his family.
The good news for McNair is that Friday likely wrapped up his appearances before the committee.
Whether that’s good news for the football program remains to be seen.
