I’ve heard Major Applewhite, the former Houston coach, as a candidate to replace Kliff Kingsbury.
But I wonder if someone as independent as Applewhite would be willing to come to USC and be second fiddle to Clay Helton?
Maybe he would. But it will be another uncomfortable pairing since Helton has no rapport with other coaches, unless they go to Western Kentucky.
UPDATED: If Applewhite goes to Miami, USC could also pursue Mike Sanford Jr., who interviewed last month with Clay Helton but was passed over and ended up with Utah State.
