Former Raptors head coach the new USC head coach

USC announced Saturday that Kevin O'Neill has been hired as men's basketball coach following the resignation of former coach Tim Floyd.

It will be interesting to see how long O'Neill will last as head coach

the man was fired from Northwestern after a 5-25 season, that's all you need to know
didn't do much at Tennessee and Zona
he's not known for luring recruits, so why did he get hired?
must be the sanctions that made it difficult for USC to get a good coach

They better get out trucks loads of Coke. Hopefully he can land them as a sponsor for the team?

O'Neill will be just fine.

His style is perfectly suited for college ball.

That's all you need to know.

Find it weird that so many posters have old Jays avatars and don't see many Leaf avatars. Wonder if it's the summer sport / winter sport thing since Jays fans are looking for something to watch...

or it could be just that the leafs have sucked for 4 decades +...

Seriously, folks, when I heard that news on Saturday afternoon, that our old friend and nemesis got one of the higher profile college jobs seemingly out of nowhere, I was almost speechless, a very rare happenstance.

Now, I don’t mind KO, kind of like him in his vulgar, quirky “Screw-the-world, I’m-KO-and-you’re-not” mentality and he does have some attributes that would make a good coach. But the dude also, apparently, has about 90 lives and to say it was surprising that he got the USC gig was an understatement.

And I’m not entirely sure that if KO showed up in my living room, asking me to entrust my teenage son to his guidance for even a couple of years, I’d sign those scholarship papers.

I’m trying to think of the best KO story I can tell here and there are almost too many.

There was the time he had us banished – for one game at least – to the other end of press row at the Air Canada Centre because one of us had the temerity to report what he’d screamed at the top of his lungs in front of us on the bench.

There was the time he really played corporate good boy by telling RaptorsTV – when they asked some lame Oct. 31 question about a favourite Halloween memory – “will the (expletive) ridiculousness never end?”

There was the time he came into a post-game bistro on a Friday night after a big win over the Knicks to get cheers from the assembled imbibers and then told one of us: “If you write that, I’ll kill you.”

And there was the day – the day Bryan Colangelo traded Stephon Marbury to the Knicks, as a matter of fact – that I sat with him in that same jam-packed bistro, trying to get reaction to the trade, while he persisted in cheering for the US over Canada in a world junior hockey final, much to the vocal chagrin of the inhabitants of that jam-packed bistro.

I have no idea how he’ll do as the USC coach (although I guarantee you it doesn’t end well whenever it ends) but I also know I’ll be paying more attention to them now.
