The Man Who Keeps the Team on the Field

Thought you were looking at a USC football player's dorm room for a second, didn't you? Certainly understandable, given the recent run of trouble that Trojan players have gotten into. The police blotter has rivaled the sports section for news about the team, confusing even the most ardent of fans. Thankfully, the nation's No. 1 team can turn to its No. 1 man, attorney Carmen Trutanich. Although he has no official connection to USC football, team officials have referred players to him often enough that, last spring, the NCAA and Pacific 10 investigated. "He's part of the [USC] community. Somebody has to represent these guys," coach Pete Carroll says of the man affectionately known as "Nuch."
