USC football: Todd McNair no longer on USC's coaching staff

July 1, 2010 | 11:14 am

Mcnair_200 Todd McNair, who was USC’s running backs coach for the last six seasons and a key figure in the the NCAA’s investigation of the school’s athletic department, is no longer part of the staff.

“Todd McNair’s contract expired on June 30, 2010,” Coach Lane Kiffin said. “We have no additional comment.”

McNair has not been in USC’s coaching offices since the NCAA handed down sanctions against USC that include four years’ probation, a two-year bowl ban and the loss of 30 scholarships over three years.

As part of the sanctions, McNair was forbidden from contacting recruits.

McNair could not immediately be reached for comment.

I’ll have more later at
