Todd McNair

Running Backs Coach


McNair, a former NFL running back and assistant coach, served as running backs coach at the University of Southern California for six seasons (2004-09), while also serving as USC's special teams coordinator for four years (2005-08). Under McNair, Trojans running backs amassed more than 1,000 yards from scrimmage six times and, in 2005, became the first unit in school history to see a pair of runners eclipse 1,000 yards rushing in a season (Reggie Bush and LenDale White). That year, with USC running backs averaging a national-best 6.4 yards per carry, Bush won the Heisman Trophy and Doak Walker Award, was a unanimous All-American, and was voted the Associated Press Player of the Year, the Walter Camp Player of the Year and the Pac-10 Offensive Player of the Year.
