Isn’t it funny how Clay Helton took from September until Feb. 18 to hire an on-campus recruiting director?
And here we thought going a month without a new strength coach was a long time. Or waiting three weeks to essentially hire a like-for-like replacement for Kliff Kingsbury was too long.
Let’s face it, Helton moves at his own speed.
But of the three openings, USC could afford to wait longest on the recruiting director spot. Have you ever seen how bloated the support staff is? Just click here for that.
Of course, some fans are so starved for rationalizations they will now blame a lousy recruiting class on the lack of an official on-campus recruiting director.
Recruits don’t eliminate USC because of who has that job or who was filling in for a few months.
- They eliminate USC because they don’t see player development on . . . the . . . field.
- They eliminate USC because current players are telling them how awful the coaches are.
- They eliminate USC because the atmosphere/culture/attitude are a joke.
They want answers/solutions from the head coach. Or even an assistant coach.
Not the on-campus recruiting director.
