Disappointing news...USC LB Coach Joe Barry is leaving for a job with the San Diego Chargers.
The Chargers have reached agreement with Joe Barry to become their next linebackers coach, completing the hirings they needed to make on Norv Turner's staff.
Barry, who spent the past two seasons at USC, replaces John Pagano, who was elevated to defensive coordinator when the Chargers fired Greg Manusky earlier this month.
Barry was a great addition and has been an important part of the development of USC's linebackers.
He is truly gifted at what he does, USC will miss him...but we will be OK!
