  1. Check the post I just put up, Anonymous, on Wooley: she just tweeted that she had a good first day at Hawaii (she needs to change her twitter handle, obviously). So yes, I guess she's working for Beeman now. That was what I heard too, but no one's talking. USC won't say anything, and the staff directory is the same:

    I have heard that Michael Cooper Jr. is also out, but I don't know how or why, nor is anyone saying anything about who will replace Cooper's staff. I have not heard that Cooper is out, though.

    The whole thing is very mysterious, which is weird to me.
