Changes in USC's defensive staff continued Thursday as Coach Lane Kiffin announced that secondary coach Marvin Sanders was no longer with the Trojans.
Sanders, who coached only one season at USC, was fired in the wake of the arrival of new defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast, who will apparently coach the secondary.
"We wish Marvin Sanders and his family the best of luck," Kiffin said in a statement. "Marvin did a great job for us coaching our secondary and in recruiting. But with the hiring of Clancy Pendergast as our defensive coordinator, we decided to go in a different direction based on Clancy's desire to oversee the defensive backs unit."
