Voluntary Assistant Troy Tulowitzki Will Not Return to Texas Next Season

Tulowitzki decided to not take the USC job and has also decided not to return to Texas.

"The last few weeks have been very difficult, Addison said on Twitter. "I struggled with my decision as to whether I should exercise my right to enter the portal. Student-athletes have not always had that opportunity, and I made that choice. I am and always will be grateful to the University of Pittsburgh, to coach Narduzzi, all my coaches (past and present), the faculty, the fans, and supporters, but especially to all of my teammates. I love them. Winning an ACC championship is ours forever. Those true friendships will last. A part of me will always be H2P. I have now carefully considered the advice of my family and close friends and fully weighed both the risks and benefits associated with my decision. I also respect that others may make a different choice. But for me, I will continue my full development as a student-athlete by enrolling at USC. Much love always, JA"

Addison now joins a new-look  offense featuring former Oklahoma standouts Caleb Williams, and Mario Williams, as well as incoming transfer running backs Travis Dye and Austin Jones,
