LOS ANGELES (AP) -An attorney for the University of Southern California said Wednesday that the Trojans will move to the Rose Bowl for next season if an agreement can be reached with operators of the stadium in Pasadena.
Todd Dickey, USC senior vice president and general counsel, acknowledged that the Trojans remain open to a compromise that would keep them in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, their home since 1923.
The impasse remained after Wednesday's meeting of the Coliseum commission. The Rose Bowl Operating Co. is scheduled to meet Thursday and weigh whether to negotiate with USC.
One major obstacle to the Trojans' move to Pasadena is their rival, UCLA. The Bruins play in the Rose Bowl and have veto power over sharing the stadium with another team. UCLA apparently would block any deal with USC that would allow the Trojans to play for more than one season in Pasadena.
USC has offered to spend $100 million to renovate the Coliseum if its commission will give the school control of the stadium, including naming and broadcasting rights. The commission has rejected the offer.
