Clay Helton might be a buffoon but that is no excuse from shirking media duties. He gets paid more than $3 million a year but cannot answer questions on Wednesdays during the season.
So if a USC defensive player gets injured, you will have the human statue, Clancy Pendergast, as the lead authority to give a poor answer. If an offensive player gets hurt, who knows whether USC will address it because offensive coaches are not allowed to speak on Wednesdays.
Helton cannot even perform basic job duties any more.
The Pac-12 is expected to announced at media day that it will move its title game to Las Vegas for the 2020 season.
