Cooper confirms he’s talking to USC

No surprises:,0,7806800.story?track=rss

You gotta love co-owner Carla Christofferson’s bluntness….she’s a lawyer, ya know:

Upon Cooper’s hiring in 2007, Sparks’ co-owner Carla Christofferson told The Times he had a one-year contract that included an option for two more seasons. Cooper has said the contract includes an opt-out clause. Cooper walked away from an interview before being asked those details. But Christofferson told The Times earlier this month, “There’s not anything that will allow him out during the season.”

So everyone on the Trojan team is happy except, allegedly, the recruits? Interesting.

  1. Was it double-talk? Meaning, could he leave midway through the season like he did the first time he left the Sparks.

    The owners come from the entertainment biz and should know the value of good PR. Neither one comes off well. They can’t afford it, but they should hire PMK and refer questions to Pat. Right now, they’re not sounding like good businesswomen, but no one is coming off well in this entire situation.

  2. I’m not going to pretend to know about PR, as I’m known for being blunt and to the point. But if anyone is looking bad right now, it’s USC and not the Sparks.

  3. This is getting crazier by the minute – i hear hackney may decommit and then i hear Oliver may recommit – does anyone know what is really going on at USC?
