USC quarterback Sam Darnold could be the next Aaron Rodgers … so says his offensive coordinator, Tee Martin.
Yep, that Tee Martin.
The ex-Tennessee Vols QB called the plays at SC this year — and did one helluva job. And he kept up the good work Monday night at the Rose Bowl where SC hung 52 on Penn State.
We spoke with Martin — who was celebrating at Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffles (legendary) — and hit him with some questions, including:
— Who’s the better college QB … you or Sam Darnold?
— Did USC and Penn State deserve to be in the college football playoffs?
— Are you gunning for a head coaching job?
— Thoughts on his mentor, Steve Sarkisian, taking over as offensive coordinator at Alabama?
By the way, Tee was SOLID at Tennessee … leading the Vols to a national championship in 1998.
Before that, when he was a freshman he backed up some other dude named Peyton Manning.
