With USC fans continuing to worship the idea of hiring Kliff Kingsbury, just a contrarian view that an NFL coach shared with me.
“He couldn’t win with Patrick Mahomes,” the coach said.
Texas Tech was 12-13 with Mahomes starting the 2015 and 2016 seasons.
Now it should be said the offense was ranked in the top 6 nationally both seasons and Kingsbury won’t be coaching the USC defense.
On the other hand, JT Daniels is no Patrick Mahomes.
I think Jack Sears should start but I’m not sure Kingsbury would be allowed by Clay Helton to bench Daniels.
And Clancy Pendergast is an extremely average defensive coordinator at best.
Also, the Big 12’s not exactly known for it defenses.
Do I think Kingsbury would be a good hire for USC? Yes.
Do I think people are going overboard at the moment? Yes.
