USC Football: Pat Haden On Norm Chow

The USC Trojans lead the Utah Utes 10-7 at halftime at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in the first-ever college football game in the Pac-12 Conference.

At halftime, USC athletic director Pat Haden was a guest on the Versus halftime show, and was asked about new Utah offensive coordinator Norm Chow, whom Haden once called the best offensive mind in college football. Haden's response had a bit of a shot at UCLA, Chow's last stop before Utah:

I've had incredible respect for Norm Chow for a long, long time. I just thought what he did here at USC in that incredible run during Pete Carroll's era, he had guys running so wide open, and I've never seen anything like it. But then again, USC had some awfully good players in those days, and where he's gone since he probably hasn't had that talent level. Great players make great coaching as you know.
