VanGorder Named Defensive Coordinator

Yeap we were late to post the "breaking news" due to us here at the LOHD do have jobs, contrary to popular belief, but thanks to the commenter on this blog that forced us to post and to quit being productive employees so we can get USC news to the masses ASAP. Anyway, according to Rivals.com....the Defensive Coordinator hunt for USC is over.

Brian VanGorder has accepted the same position with South Carolina.

A press conference is scheduled for this afternoon at 4 p.m.

VanGorder, 48, was the Falcons' linebackers coach this year under Bobby Petrino, who bolted last week for Arkansas. It will be the fifth coaching stop in as many years for VanGorder. VanGorder has more than 25 years of coaching experience. During his stint in Athens, Georgia posted a 42-10 record, won one SEC championship, two SEC East Division titles, three consecutive bowl games and posted three consecutive top-10 finishes. The Bulldogs ranked among the nation's top defenses every year under VanGorder. During his final season at Georgia in 2004, VanGorder's defense finished in the top 10 in scoring defense.

This is a great move for Spurrier and USC! What do you guys think?

Oh and we were right - Fred Chatham got the "pink slip" today.

I think you need to teach JR grammar before he can become a contributor to this blog. He is commonly known for mispelled words and terrible sentence structure. Thanks and by the way FUCK JR. haha
