Former USC coach Tim Floyd spoke out Wednesday night on his departure, blaming it on athletic director Mike Garrett.
Excerpt: “I’d like to ask the people who have tended to judge me based on that departure and the allegations is (that) I knew about those allegations six months before they came out.
“If I felt like I had done something wrong, why would I not have left when I was offered the Arizona job and the Memphis job, to run away from the issue like others have done in our business? I stayed because I knew that I had not done anything wrong. All I asked for was support and loyalty in return, which I received none.”
