Report: Former Oklahoma Coach Roy Manning Headed to USC

After a recruiting contraversy last week, Roy Manning will be headed to Southern California to join Lincoln Riley's staff.

Another Oklahoma assistant is reportedly following Lincoln Riley to USC.

A day after Roy Manning left OU’s staff, The Athletic’s Bruce Feldman has reported that he will join the staff as USC.

Last week, Manning was embroiled in controversy as he was allegedly recruiting for both the Sooners and the Trojans.

The retention of Manning onto Brent Venables’ staff wasn’t even a question, as The Oklahoman’s Ryan Aber reported that Manning resigned from his post on Sunday.

During Monday’s press conference, Venables was noncommittal on what remaining members of the staff will be retained, though he did say he intends to hire a defensive coordinator.

Along with Manning, defensive coordinator Alex Grinch, outside linebackers and defensive ends coach Jamar Cain, outside receivers coach Dennis Simmons and strength and conditioning coach Bennie Wylie have elected to follow Riley to Los Angeles.
