Obviously, this can't be the way Norm Chow wanted to start the season.
OC Aaron Price has been dismissed from the program.
Chow announced the decision Friday at the start of fall practice, but did not give details or a reason for Price's departure.
Chow says the decision was difficult, with unfortunate timing at the start of fall camp. Chow says "some issues have arisen" and the team is choosing to move forward without Price.
Price had been with the Rainbow Warriors since February. He served as offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach.
I suspect that Chow will wear two hats at this point.
With USC's defense in 2013 being a big question mark it would not surprise me if Chow pulled a rabbit out of his hat in the season opener.
