Good for Jeremy. That's the thing about layoffs with a good skill set. Most imes you'll end up better off.

This is a good opportunity for him. Carroll should give him some responsibility while he'll still be working in a pro system. He could have his choice of eventually becoming an NFL HC or College HC.

Outstanding for Jeremy! He will have some great athletes to work with. There is a kid that will be a Freshman QB there next year that looked very good in the HS All-American game (Underarmour's version). I might be able to root for USC from time to time now.

this is probably a very good move for him, his playcalling will work much better in college, where he'll have the luxury of having more dominant athletes

Matt Barkley from Mater Dei, if Bates can help him develop he could be the #1 pick in 4 years. The kid has a huge arm with great accuracy and touch, kind of like some other QB Bates has worked with.

Solid move for Bates, he can get some offensive responsibility and we know he is good with young QBs. In a few years he will be up for a good HC or OC job in the NFL.

Wonder if he opted for SC over the Lions job. Detroit would've been interesting with no expectations and Calvin Johnson and Kevin Smith to play with.

Good for him. Too bad they will continue to loose chances at a Nat. champoinship in Corvallis every other year though.

I'm still surprised Pete Carroll hasn't been given another shot at the NFL. Of course, given where he's at, maybe he has and turned them down. Bates has the opportunity to learn a lot there. Smart move for him.

He gets whatever he wants and lives in Hollywood. He's like a God. Why would he want to leave that for a place where he doesn't get to play in an average conference and hide behind his talent while ESPN and the like suck his nuts? I wouldn't.

Judging by the last couple of years of bowl results, I don't know how "average" the Pac10 is.

I'm not going to hijack the thread. Regardless of what you think, USC is on a tier well above the rest of their conference. They have the media by the balls and Carrol has turned the team into a glamorous institution. He has all control and a lot of success. There is nothing the NFL could give him, besides maybe another million a year, that would make him want to leave. Bates will get learn how a team runs on the college level and become a more well-rounded coach.
