KM: Let's get this in the open. We agreed I wouldn't badger you with USC questions.
PC: Why do you use that word -- "badger"?
KM: Fair enough. I don't know if I actually would have badgered, per se.
PC: Go ahead. It's fine. There's nothing you could ask that I haven't been asked already.
KM: Well, there's not much you can change anymore, but does your mind ever drift to what happened? Or are you able to say, "I'm an NFL coach now -- I have a job to do"?
PC: It's not a case of drifting. Everybody has personal issues they're dealing with. This falls into that category.
