Yes he did, but he also mentioned Switzer's way and Campo's way in the same sentence. This is something Hos has said verbatim about a HC having say about his staff and having the team built the way they want.
Lacewell also said that don't believe for a second that Garrett had no say in the Kiffin hire. He said it was both of them making that decision and not Jason being forced to hire Kiffin. More than likely Jerry told Jason that the DC needs to go for lack of results and the OC needs to be someone other than you. I can understand those decisions.
Two straight seasons of 8-8 and short of firing the HC, which the GM/owner still backs as his guy, why wouldn't the DC/OC wouldn't be safe?
The DC got replaced, and the OC is too.
Earlier in the interview Lacewell said his only involvement was only in watching several practices with a few scouts at USC last summer.
Lacewell also talked about some other things that happen in the NFL too, but overall I thought it was a good listen.
"It's little bit like the description of pornography from years back. It's hard to define it. But you know what it is at the end of it. It's hard to define it. I think you know who is more physical. Often times you see that in the fourth quarter. A lot of time the team on the other side feels it. We pride ourselves on being a physical football team. It's important to us. It's an important time of the year to lay that foundation." - Coach Garrett
