The conventional wisdom is that USC coach Clay Helton might be over his head but he is a nice guy.
But it’s worth noting is not everyone seems to agree. Members of the USC coaching staff have told me that Tee Martin felt like Helton ruthlessly backstabbed him by always letting the public believe Martin called all the plays.
Martin also felt Helton could be two-faced, these coaches said. I point this out because of the constant media portrayals that Helton is so nice . . . maybe too nice for the job.
He is lax with discipline but that is a different subject.
