    Agree. USC needs to seek out and hire a true professional with a background in management, administration and compliance in the realm of a major Division One athletic program and not simply a former athlete/alum with name ID.

    It is a good step and another step away from allowing big donors to have too much control. USC had two straight Athletic Directors who not only had never worked in an Athletic Department but had never even worked in an administrative role in their lives. How they would be expected to properly manage what in reality is a large business is beyond me. The athletic tradition at USC is too important to risk. Not just the revenue producing sports but also the rest. USC's Olympic roster includes 423 Trojans who attended the university before, during or after their Summer or Winter Olympic appearances. Hiring someone with USC connections is not a bad thing but the candidate must also have a resume that stands out without the connections.
