So I gave you the good news yesterday that the Seahawks are pursuing USC strength coach Ivan Lewis. But there is a less positive scenario being tossed around the McKay Center that Clay Helton could simply promote offensive line coach Tim Drevno to offensive coordinator.

Martin had his shortcomings at USC but the big takeaway will always be how Clay Helton used to let Martin … Continue reading Tee Martin Returning To Tennessee
