Did you notice Washington State’s Pat Chun, who is considered a real athletic director, took only five days after Mike Leach resigned to hire his replacement, Nick Rolovich.
It took USC 11 days after the UCLA to just to announce Clay Helton would return in 2020.
I bet if USC hired Chun in early November, I would not hear excuses that he needed more time on the job to properly evaluate Helton.
If you are a proponent of this theory, you might regret it if the nightmare scenario occurs and Helton wins just enough games to keep his job for 2021. And a part of me thinks that is exactly what Carol Folt and Co. wants. Well, I know Folt wants. I just am not 100 percent if “Co.” wants it too.
