Is the USC coaching staff respected in the coaching community?
If you know coaches, you can ask around and get opinions. I asked someone who coaches an AFC East Division team that I was referred to by an ex-USC coach.
“You have a head coach that doesn’t know what he doesn’t know,” the NFL coach said. (Clay Helton) needs to look at the defensive coordinator and special teams coach and say, `we’re never going to win a national championship with that coaching staff.’ “
“Watching USC football is so embarassing to me. It looks nothing like it’s supposed to if you are going to be a national championship team.”
- Helton does claim to know why Oregon’s getting more recruits from Souhern California.
“When you win Rose Bowls and Pac-12 titles, those are when you sign great players,” he said. “If you look at all these great freshmen and sophomores that are playing right now, it’s not a coincidence that they got signed right after that Rose Bowl year and that Pac-12 title.”
