Coach says Shaw may return at some point...Running back Brown quitsLOS ANGELES (AP) - Southern California coach Steve Sarkisian says he shares blame with the athletic department for publicizing cornerback Josh Shaw's bogus story about injuring his ankles while saving his nephew from drowning. Sarkisian also said that the suspended Shaw could "potentially" return to the Trojans at some point this season.
The first-year coach also says Shaw still hasn't told the Trojans exactly how he sprained both of his ankles last weekend.
Meanwhile, running back Anthony Brown has quit the Trojans, and coach Sarkisian was stunned by Brown's apparent accusations of racism against him on social media.
A photo of the words "Couldn't play for a racist man!!!!" was posted on what USC said was Brown's Instagram account. The posting was later deleted.
Sarkisian was told about the apparent posts from Brown, who is black, shortly after USC finished practice Thursday. The visibly disturbed coach called them "ridiculous."
