Lynn Swann has stepped down as athletic director at USC, the school announced on Monday. Dave Roberts will serve as the interim AD.

A Pittsburgh Steeler legend, Swann took over as the AD at his alma mater back in 2016. The Trojans have gone through some tumultuous times during his tenure, from being named in FBI's college basketball investigation, to being named in this year's College Admission Scandal, to general struggles on the football field as of late.

Many people saw this move coming but didn't expect it so soon. This move basically guarantees Clay Helton will be done in Los Angeles barring a miraculous season.
