Report: McNair's USC contract not renewed
By ESPN.com staff
USC won't renew the contract of running backs coach Todd McNair, the LA Times reported.
McNair, of course, is not just the Trojans running backs coach. He was the key figure in the NCAA's investigation of USC football program, as he was the lone connection between the program and a pair of would-be agents who were providing money and gifts to former running back Reggie Bush.
You can get some background on McNair here and here and here.
McNair has been at USC for six years. The Times reported that he's not been in the Trojans coaching offices "since the NCAA handed down sanctions against USC that include four years’ probation, a two-year bowl ban and the loss of 30 scholarships over three years."
“Todd McNair’s contract expired on June 30, 2010,” coach Lane Kiffin told the newspaper. “We have no additional comment.”
