Gary Klein is reporting that Lane Kiffin will not hire an Offensive Coordinator. He did not specify whether Kennedy Polamalu or someone else will be taking over the play calling duties, but what are the chances?
But one job apparently will remain unchanged, despite the Trojans' 7-5 regular-season finish.
Asked after Sunday's practice whether there would be a different offensive coordinator next season, Kiffin said no.
That means running backs coach Kennedy Polamalu will continue to be titled offensive coordinator, though the unit has been directed by Kiffin, who also serves as play caller.
There's an old quote by Archbishop Fulton Sheen that seems fitting, “Pride is an admission of weakness; it secretly fears all competition and dreads all rivals.”
