O'Neill confirms student manager's firing

1/31/2010

USC coach Kevin O'Neill has indeed fired graduate manager Stan Holt after Holt was whistled for a technical foul at a crucial juncture in Saturday night's loss at Oregon, according to the Los Angeles Daily News.

You can see O'Neill's look of disbelief as the T is called in this video from KVAL-TV in Eugene.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Oregon's student section started up a chant of "you're fired," and it turned out to be a prophetic one.

"The referee told me he was screaming obscenities at him," O'Neill said. "That's on me and that will be rectified. It already has been. He's gone. If somebody's getting a technical foul, it's going to be me."
