With its season hanging within the stability after two straight losses, USC has needed to forge forward this week with out its head coach.
Lincoln Riley missed a second consecutive follow on Tuesday with an undisclosed sickness. A USC spokesperson stated that the coach was recovering below physician’s orders and described his standing as “day-to-day.”
It’s unclear whether or not his absence might stretch by way of the weekend, with USC slated to journey to Berkeley for a crucial matchup with California on Saturday.
For now, in Riley’s place, USC receivers coach Dennis Simmons is serving as appearing head coach. USC was additionally working with its NCAA compliance workplace to raise offensive analyst Kliff Kingsbury to an appearing assistant position.
