(Photo by Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images)USC athletic director Lynn Swann has stepped down from his post as of this afternoon. What does this have to do with Urban Meyer, you wonder?Well, many are suggesting this could help the chances of Meyer potentially taking over the Men of Troy. He’s not coaching right now, but has been linked to the USC job ever since announcing his retirement.USC head coach Clay Helton entered this season on a very hot seat. Now, Swann, whose tenure at his alma mater was checkered, is out.More than a few people think Swann’s departure could help pave the way for Meyer’s arrival at some point. We don’t know who the next USC AD will be, but we do know that he or she will hire Urban Meyer.— Brian Witt (@Wittnessed) September 9, 2019In all seriousness, the one thing we know about Urban Meyer is that he has worked for two great athletic directors (Gene Smith/Jeremy Foley). Wonder if the boosters forced Swann out to get someone competent in – and make the job that much more appealing to Meyer going forward 🧐— Aaron Torres (@Aaron_Torres) September 9, 2019Someone who tells Matt Leinart and Reggie Bush to recruit Urban Meyer on USC while they’re all working for FOX. (Brady Quinn is the one who gets kept out of the loop entirely)— Brendan Stiles (@thebstiles) September 9, 2019*Sees Lynn Swann resigned***Remembers Urban Meyer flies to LA every week for the FOX pregame show*****Burns Twitter feed to ground to avoid USC rumors/flight patterns***— James Grega Jr. (@JGrega11) September 9, 2019Just gonna get a jump on these rumors now…Will Urban Meyer be USC’s next Athletic Director?🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔— Land-Grant Holy Land (@Landgrant33) September 9, 2019Those are only a few of the tweets about the subject. Just search Meyer’s name and USC on Twitter and you’ll see dozens more.We have to admit, it makes for tasty speculation, but there’s one catch. Helton is off to a good start this season.USC is 2-0 and ranked in the top 25 after beating Fresno State and Stanford. The Trojans lost starting quarterback JT Daniels to a torn ACL, but true freshman Kedon Slovis filled the void nicely last weekend.We will know a lot more about USC as a team soon. The Trojans’ next four games are against BYU, Utah, Washington and Notre Dame.last_img
