USC offered up its own response Thursday to Tim Floyd's resignation and the O.J. Mayo allegations with a pair of video statements from athletic director Mike Garrett and Todd Dickey, the senior vice president for administration.
Or, you can save a few minutes and read the short summary below.
USC officials can't comment on the investigation. (So don't expect anything after this.) Publicizing info about it could "pollute" the final verdict. Also, they have confidentiality concerns.
Dickey is overseeing USC's internal investigation. He also says USC asked to participate in the NCAA's interview of marketer Lloyd Lake, who allegedly gave Reggie Bush gifts while playing at USC. They have, however, interviewed Louis Johnson twice. He's the former associate of O.J. Mayo who told the feds and the NCAA that Floyd gave $1,000 cash to Rodney Gillory, who allegedly steered Mayo to USC.
That was most of the video. Garrett spoke after Dickey. The A.D. expressed his concern that people think the school is hiding something (they aren't) and that they're trying to protect their people (nope). He also said the school has started looking for a new hoops coach.
See? I just saved you six minutes of your life. Next time, they should get a boost from the film school and jazz up the video.
