 Palaie Gaoteote IV, Southern California, Player News


  Tough coaching was supposed to put Palaie Gaoteote's career back on track, but after a few months under new USC defensive coordinator Todd Orlando, the promising former five-star linebacker is on his way out of L.A. Gaoteote has entered the NCAA transfer portal after three seasons at USC, presumably closing the book on an up-and-down tenure with the Trojans. The junior linebacker missed the previous two games while in concussion protocol, but had been billed for a major role in USC's revamped defense. His departure leaves the Trojans especially thin at inside linebacker, where their depth already was decimated by injuries this season. The shortened season seemed like an ideal opportunity for Gaoteote, who arrived at USC in 2018 as one of the nation's top linebacker prospects. Injuries slowed his progress over his first two seasons, which were otherwise marred by missed tackles and lapses in technique. - Los Angeles Times

  Linebacker Palaie Gaoteote IV remains in concussion protocol, Helton said Tuesday. The junior suffered the injury in the second game of the season and missed USC's road win over Utah as a result. "He's had much improvement from Day 1 to where he is now, but you have to get rid of symptoms," Helton said. Sophomore linebacker Ralen Goforth is also still dealing with a foot sprain, though he was expected to start some basic change-of-direction work to test the injury Tuesday. - Orange County Register

  Todd Orlando has been named Southern California's defensive coordinator. Clay Helton announced the hiring Friday of the veteran assistant who spent the last three seasons as Texas' defensive coordinator. Orlando was fired by the Longhorns on Dec. 1 after three seasons with coach Tom Herman, who brought Orlando with him to Austin from the University of Houston. Orlando was among the highest-paid assistant coaches in the nation during his tenure at Texas. Helton fired defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast on Dec. 28 after four seasons together. One day earlier, the Trojans allowed 49 points while losing the Holiday Bowl to Iowa and finishing 8-5. - AP College Football
