USC athletic director Mike Bohn said the following about a timetable for making a decision on Clay Helton with the Los Angeles Times.
“Any time you’re a part of a significant enterprise in something that so many people are invested in, it’s something we don’t want to race into,” Bohn said. “We’re not on a specific timeline that would do anything to jeopardize momentum or opportunities that exist, regardless of what those are. Revealing any type of timeline or plan at this point would be premature and probably inappropriate.”
So he wants to wait until the season ends. Fine.
Does “opportunities that exist” mean he needs to wait until the Pac-12 South gets decided? That’s potentially troublesome because it could impact a search.
I doubt Bohn doesn’t line up who he wants no matter when he decides Helton’s fate. His reputation rides on this hire.
