A year after he was not retained as USC’s defensive coordinator by first-year Coach Steve Sarkisian, Clancy Pendergast has resurfaced, telling Fox Sports’ Bruce Feldman that he wants back in the game.
The Trojans are second in the Pac-12 and 66th nationally under defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox, who came to USC from Washington with Sarkisian.
Pendergast said he has tried to remain busy. He said he has spent a couple of days working with the Washington Redskins and the University of Tennessee but was not employed full-time.
He said he would be open to returning to college football or the NFL.
“I’m just looking for the best situation,” he said. “Coaching is coaching and teaching is teaching.”
