Don’t be fooled by the fact Mike Sanford Jr. was the Western Kentucky clone with Clay Helton ties.
He actually has strong USC ties. His parents went to USC and his father, Mike, is a former USC coach and player.
Sanford Jr. also coached at Notre Dame, Stanford and Boise State. So he actually has a better backgroud than Helton. He played quarterback at Los Alamitos and grew up in Southern California so there is nothing odd about making him the quartebacks coach and he might add a little common sense because he has actually done something.
