Would Kliff Kingsbury really use the nuclear option and resign from USC?
Maybe if only he feels Lynn Swann forced him to.
But here’s something I heard from a USC coach: Kingsbury has already sized up the rest of the coaching staff and knows he carries their own weight. So he figured out the circus-like pieces of the coaching staff. Is that a huge development? No.
But maybe he resents Swann’s power play and now sees first-hand some of the USC’s coaches (including Clay Helton) might not be up to the task. Could all that edge him toward the NFL?
We will see.
P.S. You know who cannot complain if Kingsbury leaves? Helton.
He left Arkansas State after around 50 days to become an assistant coach at USC.
