The USC Trojans Athletic Department has undergone dramatic changes over the course of the past calendar year or so. That included Lynn Swann abruptly resigning as athletic director.

The shakeup did not end there. According to Ryan Kartje of the Los Angeles Times, USC has fired three high-ranking athletic department officials.

According to the report, the firings stem from the trio allegedly being involved in the now-infamous "Varsity Blues" admission scandal that included a number of high-profile Hollywood stars, including actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman.
