  • USC likes to think their relevant today. Hearing Keyshawn he likes the yesterday program I'm sure Miami would also like yesteryear but the reality check for the Keyshawn Johnson's are simply today player's don't see a big time program there and like being under the Big Light's of programs like Alabama! They want Big time exposure and win! Maybe you could hire O J Simpson. Since you want remembering the blast from the past. The country has a bad feeling about California in general and those living there are leaving in droves . It has a stigma just not what it use to be! USC fans love talking past time football, get in the now and count how many National Championship's you've won lately. Any coach knows it will take many years to build this trashed out program to the glory years but hey Mr Sexton will be glad to help you out and make a coach very rich:)

  • Keyshawn is a good fit. Sign him!

  • Its a catch 22. If you have a coach that rings a bell, decent recruiters will be able to keep talent in state. Helton had a bad season, 5-7, recruits didnt want to stay. Now this is where math and physics applies: Forces...Alabama and Oregon, recruit at a factor of 8.5...We found out, that Helton recruited at about a 5.5...thus , the force of recruiting is greater from Alabama, Oregon, even Oklahoma and Ohio State. Helton didnt keep on recruiting, and his staff of 4 recruiters, proved it, when other teams had more recruiters and a further reach, and more up on recruiting technology, hence, Bohn reiterating, he made USC up on team infrastructure, to entice the next coach. So lets look at USC, if Helton didnt go 5-7. lets say with J.T. Daniels, he went 10-3, and won the Pac 12 Again...So now 5-star recruits would consider. But, what if the recruiting force of Alabama and Oregon and Penn State, at their record, are much greater than Helton , if he were 10-3. That is what is going on...ALso, Lets look at all the coaches that failed USC, besides Helton. Donte Williams' Cornerbacks sucked against Stanford. Todd Orlando...i dont remember Texas being good, after Colt McCoy. why get the DC from Texas? 42 points is on Todd Orlando...13 points is on Graham Harrell...he was 3 lower levels than the Air Raid Offense inventor Coach, Mike Leach... so Mike Leach, then Cliff Kingsbury, then Graham Harrell...why is USC aiming low? Todd Orlando? Pendergast was soo much better, but he couldnt do it ... SO whats causing USC to fail at multiple levels and multiple coaching positions? Pete Carroll lost to Stanford. Pete Carroll got rocked by Oregon. Pete Carroll had bad games , before he left to the Seahawks. so 2003-2005 were the only Great years...Also USC almost lost to Notre Dame, actually before the Bush Push, they did lose to Notre Dame...They almost lost to Fresno State...Bush kept scoring, and Fresno State kept scoring. NO ONE, and i repeat NO ONE has done a better job than Nick Saban and Dabo Swinney, and Urban Meyer.... I think USC needs to build Defense...focus on the best Defense in FBS...Pete Carroll is a Defense coach. You need to shut down these Spread offenses no matter how good they are, FIRST!!! shut them up. shut them down. You need an NFL coach that took the SAME players, and turned their defense around....There are a couple coaches in the NFL that are OCs and DCs that had multiple stints at making teams better. Brian Daboll, and Matt Eberflus....MATT EBERFLUS would be the next PETE CARROLL!

  • Key didn’t know about Sam the bam he only played varsity football his last year of high school he was at palisades and they had a Qb that time perry Klein and he was trying to play basketball not football..oh yeah stop saying you played qb in pop Warner you never played for the demos ..stop it

  • Key has no idea what we need at SC..was not apart of the run with bush and them was real negative toward the WR too around that time ..stop it key you don’t know

  • Hey ESPN, you know you done messed up right?

  • Who should be the next USC coach.? ESPN personalities: Anyone black

  • Yes I agree. But USC needs to focus on keeping Domani Jackson. He’s a generational talent.

  • YO.....Key.....HOW many high schools in souther cal? 100's.......STOP whining about other pac 12 schools "taking away" 5 star recruits....Have something better to offer then surf boards, Varnet sunglasses and free tours of Hollywood... your a JOKE bro.....

  • 02:40 The stain on USC is the Reggie Bush legacy. USC has not recovered for the NCAA sanctions on the program.

    • exactly. the sanctions destroyed USC. plus, the new management at USC decided as a result to run a "clean and ethical" program. that doesnt work in college football.

  • Molly gorgeous

  • mark stoops? kentucky head coach

  • Pete Carroll next year?

  • I think coach Donte Williams will do well.

  • ESPN censors comments.

  • Please don’t make Dante Williams the permanent head coach and make the same mistake 4 times in a row. This is not a black or white thing it’s a experience thing. He’s never even been a coordinator or ever coached in the NFL. He would be learning on the job. Every learning on the job HC they hired over the last 15 years was fired during the season. Lane Kiffin, Steve Sarkisian and Clay Helton. Go out and get a College football coach with winning credentials and experience. This program has been through enough it is getting too expensive to keep firing and buying out these guys that were never qualified in the first place.

    • Actually lane kiffin coached the raiders for 2 years before he became head coach for USC. So yeah.

  • I used to go watch spring practice at USC, late 70's and early 80's, on those days when it was open to the public. And I'm used to watching guys like Ronnie Lott, Dennis Smith, Joey Browner, Chip Banks, Charles White, Marcus Allen, Bruce Mathews, Keith Van Horn, Brad Budde, and Anthony Munoz. That was USC football. When they ran "student body sweep" the ground shook. Jim Murray from the LA Times once wrote that, "When the USC line stood up, they could see Denver."

    • It was open when Pete was their too

  • Keyshawn, Your school should get BACK to the basics. Stop smelling yourselves and commit yourselves to excellence.

    • DILLY...DILLY! 👍👍👍🤣

  • He scared of keshawn😂😂😂

  • Changes needed at USC: new coach, new uniforms, new style of qb with color

    • @HR Pickinstuff usc is not winning because they don't recruit either dual threat qbs and they don't recruit qbs of color

    • @HR Pickinstuff no usc apparently is racist because when the last time you seen a black qb at USC. That's why you're a losing program because of close minded people like you

    • You sound racist. Judge a man by his skill set not color. Jackson Dart is their QB of the future and he’s white to bad. Go watch another team.

  • USC ain’t ever coming back man. Let it go.

  • Becky with the good hair

  • #1. Urban Meyer(won't be long until Jax ousted him, having created rifts and friction there, maybe Bohnhead hinting it'll take a few months to hire a HC) #2. Bob Stoooooooooops #3. Chris Petersen Other than those candidates, SC needs to RAID the Bill Belichick or Nick Saban coaching tree..... People need to Quit with the James Franklin gossip, dude can't even make the CFP!! Whittingham, Fickell, & Campbell ALL signed extended contracts thru 2026 and beyond....

    • @George Brady HC Pete Carroll's winning in the NFL, don't think He'll ever come back.... He's doing great things with the Seahawks...

    • Pete Carroll return?

  • Cost of living sucks cali overrated

  • Bear Bryant the head coach at Alabama had nothing but all white players at Alabama until Bear saw Sam Cunningham at USC. Forever changed the mines of the lengendary head coach Bear Bryant

  • Notre Dame, Michigan, USC to quote 2pac in The Movie Above the Rim. “YOU THE PAST BRO” . This not the old days . With technology this recruiting thing is nationwide. Gone are the days of just stacking in state talent. Players not about to sit behind nobody and wait there turn Key. If you are good it doesn’t matter if you go to USC or Mississippi State . The NFL will find you. Adapt or die.

    • MAKE sure the Key READS this .....Dilly...Dilly!

  • Off topic but hes rocking that blazer

  • Key right USC launched the SEC back in the 70’s when black athletes could not play in the SEC. Until USC smashed Alabama and USC had running back by the name of Sam Cunningham who ran the ball and destroyed Alabama defense. That’s when Bear Bryant started to recruit black athletes

  • Usc social media should be the biggest social media of any college they are literally in Southern Cal who wants to live in Racist Alabama?? Usc better start using other avenues to recruit

    • TOOO Late....other pac 12 schools WILL get their share....University of SPOILED Children....ask them actors and their designer husbands..USC is a JOKE!!!🤣🤣🤣

    • @K Kwill yeah the talent is there. They aren’t keeping the right QBs and definitely weren’t coaching em right.

    • They dont have a recruiting problem...of the Top 50 California recruits of 2021 14 of them are at USC and 37 of them are at PAC12 schools...USC had a CLay Helton problem...which is why Jake Garcia, Justin Flowe and Bryce Young de-committed when it was announced CLay Helton was coming back... and why KAyvon Thibedeaux chose Oregon over USC...and why JT Daniel left for Georgia because his "genius" coordinator Harrel thought a 2 star nobody (SLovis) was supposed to be better than the #1 player n the Nations...smh..thats Helton for you

  • He advocated for Clay Helton, a guy with no coaching experience and the only common denominator between Kiffin and Sarks failed staffs. Helton was NOT a safe hire. He was as risky as they come. A SAFE hire is someone who has demonstrated the ability to succeed on the college level

    • @iggypopisgod9 Cliff Kingsbury , left in 1 month...Why?

    • @Bob Feller In short, you make it attractive enough for somebody to drop everything. USC has that power: 7-8 million per year.

    • @Bob Feller USC has deep pockets: somebody will be available

    • @Bob Feller I know you're not intelligent, but it's really about hiring the best option. USC crippled itself by investing in a guy who failed at every stop in his career.

    • @Mastermind Did I say I was a Helton supporter? What's the matter with you? A program that large is more than X's and O's, and it's a fact, there isn't always someone immediately available whom you's really like to have. Use your head.

  • Honestly they should of had Bryce young. Not getting him was a huge huge huge miss !!

    • Bryce was committed to USC recommitted. Alabama is winning its normal for big stars to want to play on elite teams. USC needs to start winning again to have that pull.

  • USC gotta hire Gregg Popovich.

  • If key truly follows USC football, how come he can't even pronounce USC's QB name properly?

  • No college head coach no on Franklin.

  • "We (USC) launched the SEC," 😂😂😂. Talk yo sh##, Keyshawn. USC needs to swing for the fences. The NIL now being legal in the NCAA should guarantee USC, which has LA and Hollywood as its backdrop, should get all 5-star recruits it wants.

    • Deion Sanders or Beinemy

    • He's right, read the book. Back then, Alabama only had one Black player. Sam Cunningham said he never thought about the significance of the game as USC had already been integrated. Sam had about 142 yds. that night as the full back.

  • Has been U...

  • Urban Meyer

    • @Noah Fernandes eff u @#$%. I didn't ask for yo @#$% input.

    • Is done with college idiot. He’s not taking the job, keep dreaming

  • Sounds like Nebraska fans. “It’s our right! It’s our property!” Haha no it’s not. USC has to compete with 3 NFL Teams, Miami doesn’t have the money anymore to compete nationally. The school is tiny. They don’t event have an on campus stadium which kids today want to play in.

    • USC and the U both were crippled severely with their sanctions. Even the playing field and certain teams took that opportunity and haven’t given it back.

  • Turned the video off at 1:12 when I realized max wasn’t in and SAS appeared

  • Dan lanning a fit for usc honestly

  • College football is better when USC, Miami, Michigan and FSU are national powers

  • What happened to USC was the crimes and violations of Pete Carroll. All those wins and dominant teams... bought and paid for by dirty money. When USC got caught, sanctioned, and has had to play by the rules like everyone else, they have been very average ever since. Forgettable even.

    • Go watch soccer

    • @Kenny R 🤡

    • @Pro Gamer The "clown".....is in your pants

    • Thank you....great post!

    • @K Kwill sounds about right. Those sanctions crippled USC and they did the same to the U. Weird how they were ok with Bama tho?

  • Replace Max with kumdump Molly

  • Everyone let’s work together please and let’s make Max new show #1 in ratings !!!! SA thinks he has all the power but he fails to recognize that he didn’t make is show number 1 , WE DID !!! WE gave him the tv ratings he’s so filled with pride and boastful over !!!! Let’s take the support we gave him and let’s now give it to MAX with his new show !!! Let’s make his show number 1 !!!!! We have the power not SA !!!!!

  • Maybe they should have tried to pull Ken Norton junior from the seahawks during the NFL off season. SC Has endured 11 years of garbage coaching.

    • Funny thing is, Norton tried to start his coaching career at UCLA where he went to school. They said no, so Pete gave him a job.

    • Y’all really miss Pete carrol

  • Someone tell Key I said QUACK QUACK 🦆🦆😹😹😹

  • USC and UM have all the top recruits in their area and can’t get them to go to their schools.

    • @weekendtrailerparksupervisor 420 Not a lot of interest in surfboards and designer sunglasses nation wide.

    • 'THEY" (recruits)....get worn out stepping over the homeless....(vids available)

    • @Adrian Smith USC’s ability to compensate athletes was crippled severely since the sanctions. With NIL on the horizon perhaps momentum swings back to so cal.

    • They both shut down their football programs-what did you expect?

    • There definitely gotta be something wrong at USC. Because it should be easy for a kid to wanna stay home, stay in the state let alone Los Angeles, California and say "I wanna be a Trojan" rather then have to travel to places like Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State and other Pac 12 School.

  • first take KEEP KEYSHAWN!!!!!

    • WHY????

    • Max sucks, stop it with the love for him. His takes are bad

    • @TippinMehLadyyeah it is doing a lil better, but they not just gone leave stephen A on the side, he 2 big....like cam newton behind mac jones lol..it couldnt happen

    • Nah he’s with max and J will doing better than FT now

  • usc just needs to find pretty much any OC or DC in the nfl that wants a promotion and wants to be a head coach...

    • @iggypopisgod9 SoCal kids go where they can get ready for the NFL...college success doesnt seem to be all that important...or else why go to Arizona?!? I guess it worked out for Gronkowski

    • @K Kwill Nah, college is about recruiting, which leaves NFL out. USC will hire an established coach

    • @Adrian Smith has he actively pursued a job tho?? I feel like of he wanted a job he would have been hired. Why leave KC anyways? You have Mahomes there for at least 6-7 years there. EB could be the heir to Andy.

    • Exactly...it HAS to be an NFL coach...not one of these gimmicky, wanna be boy genius coaches who cannot coach BASIC football. Thats is what is wrong with the PAC12...they are playing copycat hiring these fake coaches

    • @Adrian Smith great idea. i still cant believe he didnt get the houston job. he has way more experience on both levels vs their current hc

  • Carson Palmer needs to be the new USC Coach. What do y'all think? His brother Jordan Palmer can be the QB Coach and Offensive Coordinator. Because of their NFL Background and Connections. His brother trained guys like Trevor Lawrence and Josh Allen. They can give top recruits of California a chance to go the NFL. They can turn around that program and give USC hope.

    • Nah...no no coaching experience

    • @Knock Out might aswell go back to coach Sarkisian

    • Might as well keep Clay then.

  • Tee Martin or nah??

  • What’s the real reason max left? Does anybody know real facts??

    • I’m glad he’s gone.

    • Listen to his hot 97 interview he tells it all

    • Hot97 I believe did an interview with SAS on what happened. It’s on SLflow I believe

    • If you want Stephen As view

  • Dead Take , we need Max !

  • Who are the new candidates? They need to get back to how they played with Reggie Bush

  • What is it that ESPN gotta keep a pretty woman who's clueless on what tf really goin on

  • USC will never be what they used to be NCAA needs to give Reggie bush back his heisman

    • @Jay Yeah those guys seem to keep spitting out NFL talent too...you wouldnt think so...but they do.

    • @K Kwill ND has a bunch of All Pro OLineman in the league right now that could eventually make it as well.

    • NO.

    • @Jay Notre Dame and USC are tied for #1...did I miss something? #14 is playing in the NFL right now with the Cowboys

    • @K Kwill Schools with the most Hall of Famers Notre Dame (13) Southern California (13) Michigan (11) Ohio State (10) Miami - Florida (9) Pittsburgh (9) Alabama (8) Syracuse (8) Minnesota (7) Illinois (6)

  • I hate Stephen A... Cant stand to even hear his voice.

    • Stephen A Smith is a racist, race baiting Loud mouth.

    • Who clicked on the video?!?!

    • Agreed. Also, I’ll never forget when he had that show ten or so years ago and spent each episode blowing Kobe.

  • Hire OJ

    • ESPN or USC? 😂

    • USC should take a stab at that

  • This might go unnoticed but I’m an up & Coming Artist worth the listen 👂

    • crickets............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

  • Wheres Max

    • He died. Couldn’t take the stress of being a horrible sports reporter and off’d himself.

    • @YoungBlaze81 rephrase that he snitched on him 😆😆

    • Stephen A got rid of him.

    • ESPN Radio now
