Defensive coordinator Rocky Seto, who has been involved with the USC football program as a player and coach since 1997, will not be retained on new head coach Lane Kiffin’s staff.
“For almost my entire life, I always dreamt about being a part of the ‘SC football program,” said Seto, a former Trojan linebacker (1997-98) who went on to coach at Heritage Hall for 11 seasons. “I’m thankful God allowed it to happen for the last 13 years. It’s been wonderful.
“I’m totally at peace with what has happened, which is a total miracle from God. The Lord taught me over the years to not put my hope in things or jobs or the stuff of this earth. The only thing that’s lasting is Jesus Christ.”
Seto said he’s not sure what his next career step will be at the moment.
“I’m excited to see what the Lord has next and to see where He leads us,” said Seto, husband to Sharla, a former USC soccer player, and father of three children. “The Lord is good. We can have peace in Him.”
