I should have added in the previous post that Clay Helton fired defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox, defensive line coach Chris Wilson, defensive backs coach Keith Heyward and offensive line coach Bob Connelly before the 2015 Holiday Bowl.
“I wanted to give them the best opportunity to move forward with their career,” Helton said at the time.
So it is obvious Helton does not want to fire Clancy Pendergast or John Baxter. In fact, with his newfound power since Carol Folt backed him, Helton probably thinks he can fight for his two closest associates.
And with Mike Bohn’s history of caving, Helton probably figures it can’t hurt to try and save the duo.
- There is a report former USC QB Jack Sears has committed to San Diego State but nothing’s been confirmed yet.
