Norton Staying at Southern Cal

Per the fishwrap:

USC linebackers coach Ken Norton, who was wooed by UCLA to return to his alma mater, said today that he would remain with the Trojans.

Norton, 41, said he spoke with new Bruins coach Rick Neuheisel and defensive coordinator DeWayne Walker about joining the UCLA staff as an assistant head coach. Chuck Bullough is UCLA's linebackers coach.

"I'm flattered. They'll always be a team in my heart," said Norton, an All-American linebacker for the Bruins in 1987 who played 13 seasons in the NFL. "I feel real good about Rick Neuheisel and what he's going to do there.

"The timing just wasn't right. I'm really appreciative of what Pete Carroll has done for me over here, and my business is not finished."

Since I have not yet learned the HTML codes for shading (perhaps after the second part of my class tomorrow), I now need to complete my 200 word minimum.

I would like to say how much I have enjoyed sharing my excitement for basketball and football with all of you.  As I am now exiled from Los Angeles for the next few years, this is my outlet for contact with those who share my passion for my alma mater, as well as my one-stop shop for all news Bruin.  I can't tell you how nice it was during the weeks before CRN's hire to come hear, get up to date on the latest rumors, then go about my business.  I am a more informed fan because of this site, and I have all of you to thank for that.

I don't know what the future holds for us in basketball and football, but I know we are in good hands (wow, that feels good to say that about football after far too many years).  My only regret is that I am too far away to take in all of these wonderful events, but sharing them with all of you is the next best thing.
