You know who was interested in the USC defensive coordinator’s job?
Former San Francisco 49ers head coach and NFL Hall of Famer member Mike Singletary.
There was simply no way someone with Singletary’s fiery personality would ever mesh with Clay Helton so this was a non-starter from the beginning. He never interviewed.
- USC has posted openings for an assistant director of player personnel and director of high school relations. It’s part of the effort to increase the size of the recruiting staff.
The excuse makers claim USC has a small recruiting staff that hinders recruiting.
They can’t answer why two years ago, the overwhelmed recruiting staff helped produce the nation’s No. 3-ranked class or three years ago they produced the nation’s No. 6-ranked class.
They also won’t talk about how the two best recruiting staff members quit in the past two years because they were tired of seeing only one member rewarded with promotions/raises for no reason other than favoritism by Helton.
