Lynn Swann says he’ll stay at USC for long haul, but decision might not be his to make

It’s hard to imagine Swann reaching a decade, let alone half that, on the job given what has transpired over the last 18 months, in which three USC athletic department employees working under him have been arrested by the FBI. Swann calls them rogues who took advantage of his trust, but it also speaks to the lack of oversight in the department under his watch. USC has been without a president since C.L. Max Nikias stepped down in August. Whenever a new president is named, one of their first jobs will be to decide whether Swann is the right person to lead the athletic department.
