According to FootballScoop, USC football coach Will Muschamp has hired former Philadelphia Eagles’ coordinator of college scouting Matt Lindsey as his director of player personnel.
As a part of the hire, USC director of player personnel Robbie Liles will become the director of football operations replacing Jamie Speronis who was not retained by Muschamp after the 2016 season.
Lindsey was hired by the Eagles in 2014 when Chip Kelly was head coach and was let go in February of 2016, just a couple of months away from the NFL Draft.
Lindsey is a native of Northport, AL and he attended the University of Alabama where he was a student intern with the football team.
Last week FootballScoop and other outlets reported Muschamp had hired Drew Hughes from Florida for the job at USC but Hughes decided to stay with the Gators.
