USC coach Kevin O'Neill has reversed course on his firing of Stan Holt and reinstated the graduate manager four days after letting him go in wake of the technical foul called on Holt in Saturday's game.
"He made a mistake and it was a costly one," O'Neill said in a statement. "Although I did not hear what was said, I realize he was trying to support our team and that he cares a lot about our team. But Stan understands that he was out of line.
"Everyone deserves a second chance and I'm willing to give him that second chance."
