Looks like he's busy - https://www.latimes.com/sports/usc/story/2020-01-14/usc-athletic-officials-fired

When Mike Bohn was hired as the first outsider to lead USC athletics in decades, sweeping changes were expected inside a historically insular department recently racked by scandal.

Those changes at Heritage Hall have begun, according to multiple people familiar with the situation who were not authorized to speak publicly. Three of USC’s most senior officials in the athletic department are out, including Steve Lopes, the CFO and COO, who’d long been considered second in command.

Their removals stem in part from concerns over recent turmoil, including the “Varsity Blues” admissions scandal, The Times has learned. One department official, Donna Heinel, was indicted on federal bribery charges last year.

Ron Orr, a senior associate athletic director who led the Trojan Athletic Fund, is also out, along with associate athletic director Scott Jacobson, who also worked in development and fundraising.

Hope USC is ready for their “CU 2005-18” era. I certainly am

Helton has a better record and a conference championship as well. Just sayin.
I see your conference championship and call your bet - Barnett had one as well (remember 62-36 followed by 39-37 over UT in Dallas).
And while Helton may have the better record, Barnett has a couple more division titles to his credit than Helton. Granted vs. a down B12 North, but still titles.

Hence why I said “as well”. You think I’m not aware of Barnett’s conference championship?

I think the gist of Miami’s argument is that Bohn will fire a moderately successful coach who is on a downhill trajectory, and send the trajectory off a cliff.

It's like in your guys' memory GB never coached at another school in a P5 conference.

He's one of only about 5 or 6 coaches to have won conference championships in two different P5 conferences.

He might be the only CU head coach with head coaching experience in the Rose Bowl. (There's an assignment for Plati)
