Two sources tell me they still believe USC is attempting to line up a replacement for Clay Helton and that is the reason the program remains in limbo today.
“The only reason I can imagine this delay is if they are negotiating with someone,” the source said. “Otherwise, they would have announced Clay is staying.”
Remember in 1997, Mike Garrett kept John Robinson as USC coach until he hired Paul Hackett on Dec. 17, when the season ended Nov. 22.
But that was before twitter existed.
