USC's week takes another twist as player quits team, calls coach a racist on Instagram

UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA’S bizarre week continued yesterday when senior running back Anthony Brown abruptly quit the team and accused coach Steve Sarkisian of racism.

Sarkisian announced the news at practice a day after another player, senior cornerback Josh Shaw, was suspended indefinitely for making up a story about spraining his ankles while saving his drowning nephew.
