I like that he works out in jeans Wait, are those jeans?


USC is holding their Pro Day tomorrow and it figures to be another big event. It may not receive as much attention as last year's, which USA Today dubbed the top workout in the country, but maybe they're fine with less attention this year.

Mainly because the attention last year was on Pete Carroll's outrage at a hand-to-hand combat drill Kansas City Chiefs coach Tim Krumrie conducted with defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis.

The drill, pictured above, didn't sit well with Carroll:

The other Pro Day eye-opener was a hand-to-hand combat drill in which players engaged a former-NFL-player-turned-coach (pictured above). Carroll apparently wasn't happy with it and reportedly told the media, "That won't happen again here."

Ellis said "that drill's a doozy".  Other NFL coaches around the league reportedly scoffed at the notion that Krumrie's workout has any value at all.  Plus, it tires a player out in the middle of a workout which could jeopardize how they perform the entire day.

If you're not familiar with Tim Krumrie, then you probably haven't been hanging around here long enough.  He's the team's defensive line coach and, judging by a quick search of the site, not the most popular guy.  Todd Haley surprisingly (to us) kept him on board.

The Chiefs spoke with Fili Moala, USC defensive tackle, at the NFL Combine.
