Former Louisiana-Lafayette football coach Rickey Bustle said Tuesday he is very interested in the opening on Steve Spurrier’s staff at USC and has made contacts with some staff members he knows in an effort to get his name in front of Spurrier.
Bustle was fired in November after nine seasons as head coach at La-La. He is known for his offensive coordinator and quarterback coaching skills, but Bustle said he also worked with his special teams, a group that blocked 44 kicks during his tenure.
Bustle is a Summerville native and Clemson grad who spent a season as offensive coordinator at USC under Brad Scott.
Spurrier has to replace his special teams coordinator and recruiting coordinator Shane Beamer who left to become running backs coach at Virginia Tech.
