Look at how similar Mark Richt and Clay Helton were the past two seasons:
- Miami went 10-3 and lost in the Orange Bowl in 2017.
- USC went 11-3 and lost in the Cotton Bowl in 2017.
- Miami finished 13th in the final AP Top 25 poll. USC was 12th.
- Miami went 7-6 this season. USC went 5-7. Miami lost in the Pinstripe Bowl. USC did not make a bowl.
Richt resigned today. Helton was protected by his incompetent athletic director and made a few changes to his coaching staff. The similarities ended.
