USC head coach Lincoln Riley is catching some heat for the program's decision to suspend a reporter from access to the team for two weeks. Per The Orange County Register, beat writer Luca Evans has been banned from covering the Trojans after Riley took issue with a story that was published last Thursday, which revealed a conversation that two players were having while preparing to speak with reporters.
'I don't feel like we have too many rules, too many policies, but the ones we do have we take them serious because my first job is not to, even though it is part of my job, it's not for the media, it's not for the fans, it's not anyone else, it's protecting the players. That is first and foremost,' Riley said [of the suspension]. 'I know the article in question was not accurate, there were multiple policies broken and felt like it was far enough that we needed to act. We look forward to welcoming the reporter back when the time is up.'
