USC has offered the defensive coordinator’s job to former Texas DC Todd Orlando, as first reported by Pete Thamel of Yahoo.
Orlando got fired at Texas after giving up 446.3 yards per game last season.
But he has a history of doing a pretty good job in Year 1 and then getting worse after that. That won’t bother Clay Helton because he needs a one-year injection.
Texas ranked 24th in points per game in 2017, 49th in 2018 and 58th in 2019.
By the way, if you questioned that Mike Bohn was going to be heavily involved in this thing, Orlando is not a guy who would ever be called by Helton.
