USC hires Mike Bohn, former Cincinnati AD, as athletic director
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Southern California has hired veteran collegiate sports administrator Mike Bohn as its new athletic director.
USC announced the hiring Thursday, nearly two months after Lynn Swann abruptly resigned.
Bohn has spent the past five years as the athletic director at the University of Cincinnati. He also has been the AD at Colorado, San Diego State and Idaho.
The 58-year-old Bohn is the first AD at USC with no ties to the school since 1993. The Trojans’ past three athletic directors — Mike Garrett, Pat Haden and Swann — were all former USC football players with no prior experience working in athletic administration, and all three left with the department in turmoil.
Dave Roberts had been USC’s interim AD since Swann quit in September.
