JT Daniels spoke to the Athletic and said this about the QB competition.
“Every job should be open every season. It’s kind of the way football works and the way life works in general. You can’t get complacent. You can’t just expect to have everything handed to you.”
He also defended USC coach Clay Helton.
“Everyone’s entitled to their own opinion. It’s very easy to share your opinion with today’s methods. I will, always have and always will, stand completely by Coach Helton because I can tell you firsthand from someone that’s actually on the football team, there’s a whole lot of blame that goes on players not making plays. It’s not exclusively coach’s fault. I bet if you ask Coach Helton (if) he could have done anything better, he would be the first one to tell you there are things he could have done better.”
At least he is loyal to Helton, who protected his job status without fail.
