USC hires Kevin O'Neill as Men's Basketball Coach
USC announced on their website that Kevin O'Neill was hired as their Men's Basketball Coach. An assistant coach and special assistant to the GM for the Memphis Grizzlies this past season, most people here in Pac-10 Land will know O'Neill from being the interim coach in 2008 for the Arizona Wildcats while head coach Lute Olsen took a leave of absence. And contrary to what CNBC's Darren Rovell said, USC football coach Pete Carroll did not break the news.
