Anthony Lynn shoots down any rumors of him leaving the Lions for USC

·1 min read

Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn doesn’t typically address things outside of his Lions responsibilities in his weekly press conferences. But Lynn made an exception this week.

Lynn addressed the nonspecific but virulent rumors circulating that he is a candidate to take over as head coach of the USC Trojans program.

“I’m surprised that was the fourth question. I was waiting on that one,” Lynn said. “My sister graduated from USC. Half of my family is in California. A lot of guys I’ve played with went to USC. So, of course those guys have talked to me and that’s flattering, but to be honest with you, I’m surprised something like this even went public.”

Lynn continued,

“No, I haven’t spoken with USC at all. My focus is one million percent right here with the Detroit Lions. I love what Coach Campbell and Brad Holmes are doing, the Ford family, I love the grit in our players, hell, I love this fanbase. We want to win for these people and we’re going to build a consistent winner here, but this is where my focus is right now.”
