With USC on the verge of going 8-4, I’m seeing some talk that maybe Clay Helton should be retained on the condition he fire Clancy Pendergast and John Baxter.
I was advocating that two years ago after a 10-win season. We are in 2019 and it is too late to merely fire a defensive coordinator and special teams coach.
There is a leadership vacuum at USC and it won’t be solved by firing two assistant coaches. Will that solve recruiting? Will that solve penalty problems? Will it cause fans to return to the Coliseum next season?
