USC assistant coach resigns

University of Southern California secondary coach Willie Mack Garza resigned for personal reasons on Thursday.

"I stepped down today from my coaching duties at USC," said Garza, who was in his second year at USC. "I have some personal issues unrelated to USC that I need to address. I wish the Trojans the best and I am sorry I won't be with them in what I know will be a very successful season."

USC opens its season this Saturday at home against Minnesota.
