O’Neill out as USC basketball coach

In a shocking move, USC Monday morning announced the dismissal of Kevin O’Neill, the much-traveled, fourth-year basketball coach. O’Neill had been considered on the hot seat, but Saturday, his team had a blowout victory at Utah.

“It was hard for me to evaluate him as a head coach until this year when he had enough players and veterans to compete,” said USC athletic director Pat Haden in a statement. “As the season progressed, it became evident to me that we needed new leadership in our men’s basketball program. Despite a nice road win in our last game, I felt it was best to make a change now, with most of the Pac-12 season still ahead of us, in order to re-energize our team.”

Longtime USC assistant Bob Cantu will be interim coach.
