USC Trojans Head Coach Lincoln Riley announced today that they have relieved defensive coordinator Alex Grinch from his duties. Defensive Line Coach Shaun Nua and Inside Linebackers Coach/Associate Head Coach for Defense Brian Odam will serve as interim co-defensive coordinators for the remainder of the season.

Also, Defensive Analyst Taylor Mays has been elevated to an on-field assistant coach and will work with the safeties.

This comes after another brutal defensive performance against Washington that saw the USC Trojans give up 52 points, and 572 total yards, 316 of those on the ground.

We will have plenty more on this story as it develops.
