Embroiled in controversy, Southern California coach Tim Floyd resigned on Tuesday, The Clarion Ledger of Jackson, Miss., reported.The newspaper obtained the contents of a letter that the coach submitted to USC athletic director Mike Garrett.

"Unfortunately, I no longer feel I can offer the level of enthusiasm to my duties that is deserved by the university, my coaching staff, my players, their families, and the supporters of Southern Cal," the letter said. "I always promised myself and my family that if I ever felt I could no longer give my full enthusiasm to a job, that I should leave it to others who could. I intend to contact my coaching staff and my players in coming days and weeks to tell them how much each of them means to me. I wish the best to USC and to my successor."

I hope I become a top college prospect and get alot of free stuff then

Besides even if you were able to seduce a player to play for your school wouldn't the player be more guilty then coach that is offering the items. Also if this coach could bribe a player to play for his school wouldn't that speak alot about his character and would want this kid to be on his team?
