I'm really confused by this and even more so after googling.
I see that he was UTk's OL coach in 2019... when did he go to USCe? Was this recent? I see an article about USCe owing UTk a buyout for Friend, dated 1/5/2021.
<Edit to add link: https://www.knoxnews.com/story/sports/college/university-of-tennessee/football/2021/01/05/tennessee-football-will-friend-contract-south-carolina-gamecocks-buyout/4130046001/>
Someone help me with the timeline?
<Edit AGAIN to add... I read the 2nd paragraph. Sounds like a recent move to USCe, then a bounce to us. Strange!>
