Women's water polo star tranfers to USC - 12-01-2012, 12:27 PM

Kelly Mendoza is now playing for USC and her mother, Maureen O'Toole-Purcell is no longer the volunteer assistant coach. Sounds like another conflict with Coach Rich Corso? Anybody have the scoop?

No need to go into details, but yes there was a conflict.

Yeah, the fact that is not surprising is deflating.

My experience with Coach Corso is that he's a little too self-righteous and inflexible. I know he has his supporters, but some of the stuff he says is disturbing to me. I don't know him well; he should be more careful with what he says. Obviously, I will not elucidate here about what he has said. BTW,the older Steffens signed a letter of intent to Cal and then wanted out in order to attend furd;there was a coaching change at the time.

At Monte Vista High in Danville, Maggie Steffens was Michael Jordan.
And Kelly Mendoza was Scottie Pippen.
True.

Don't care for Corso but this one may not be his fault
