It’s already the day before the Holiday Bowl?
One thing I’ve heard from several college coaches is that if USC hires a good defensive coordinator, the coordinator will probably want to try and bring in some of his own guys to coach.
Would Clay Helton or Mike Bohn go for that?
A respected defensive coordinator might say they won’t risk their reputation without their own linebackers coach or defensive line coach or defensive backs coach.
One could argue USC’s offense was hindered this season because it tried to mesh new coaches (Graham Harrell, Mike Jinks) with existing coaches like Tim Drevno.
Bohn didn’t spend any money on a new head coach so maybe multiple staff changes would not kill him financially.
Of course, the defensive coaches have already pondered this scenario and are just as interested as the fans in what might happen after the Holiday Bowl.
