How does Clay Helton ever look at himself?
Let’s look at his staff turnover:
Fired today: Clancy Pendergast, John Baxter.
Fired a year ago: Tee Martin, Kenechi Udeze, Ronnie Bradford, Neil Callaway.
That is six coaches in around 12 months. The guy has basically blamed around 2/3 of the coaching staff for his problems. It’s the offensive coordinator’s fault. No, it’s the defensive coordinator’s fault. No, the special teams coach. The secondary coach. The defensive line coach. The offensive line coach.
We all know better. We know Helton is the biggest problem.
Oh, and I’m not even counting the end of the 2015 season, when Helton fired Justin Wilcox, Keith Heyward, Chris Wilson and Bob Connelly.
