USC will not quit Donte, there is not no how, not no way. Donte is the main ingredient in the secret USC formula that must be kept at all costs. This has been the case since Peet Carroll, the main recruiter MUST stay in order to hold the class together. I think that this strategy has ultimately been a huge curse, as there is more emphasis on star chasing than building a program, and what you get is a bunch of highly rated, undercoached players that don't win anything. So, the next coach will 100% have to keep Donte on staff as part of the hiring deal. Donte is not a good position coach as anyone who has watched a USC game can plainly see.
I hope they give Donte a 10 year deal similar to the one Jimbo Fisher signed.
Petersen isn’t retired ... he will be back
@BruinEngineer they said Stoops was done, and he went to the XFL
I just disagree. I listened to Petersen's interviews for over 6 years. I wouldn't be shocked, but very surprised if he returns to coaching at a major college program. The college game is changing. I don't like it and neither does Petersen. If Humbolt St. still had a football team, that could be a landing spot...

@mandb I agree with you. I think the uniqueness and the unusual reasons why Petersen made a good coach, unlike other perhaps more stereotyped men who more easily fit the mold of a true college coach, is the exact reason for Petersen hanging it up, and not looking back, like others have after supposedly "retiring".
Whereas everyone knows I don't have the same hard on for him others do, I do recognize that he was unique amongst the coaching ranks, and that helped lead to his success as a coach.
Basically put.....he's too smart and too wise to stay in coaching....lol. Me, I prefer my head coach to be a bit more simple-minded and laser-focused on winning above almost all else....a junk-yard dog, let's say....basically someone who is so single-minded, aggressive and cunning, he could actually be accepted into the Secret Service as an agent if he wanted to... 😉
the record is 71, as no one scored over 35. Petersen retired at the end of tye season with a record of 71 consecutive games.
The above suggests a reasonable approach to the next HC hire: find a consistently high-performing NFL defensive specialist (preferably HC) and write the check. Presumably, he would know and attract the kind of OC with a style that is a good fit with his defensive style.
So you're saying he won't replace Chip.
@BobLinMN-2 because your mom usually tucks you in after she's done blowing me.
@BruinEngineer You can't even make sense and your social development would embarrass a 10th grader.
Chris Petersen does not suffer fools, so I have a hard time believing he would willingly take a job and surround himself with what he despises most.
This after cleaning up fat lazy stupid Suck’s mess
I didn't realize Washington had accomplished that under Petersen. Pretty impressive.
Petersen to USC could happen. I think his wife hates SoCal, but he could always dump her. Or, she could stay in Buttfuck, USA while he lives in SoCal and bangs USC co-eds. But seriously, folks, I'm guessing this time he might actually pull the trigger. However, the suits need to be on-board, and that's always tricky.
They moved to Buttfuck, USA? Well damn, I never thought they would leave Drycock, Idaho.
Petersen needed to 3 more wins at this point and he went on to break the record. Unbelievable consistency from Petersen, slam dunk hire, if Bohn had half a brain he would do whatever it takes to get Petersen at USC, but Bohn will screw this hire up.
