A former USC coach, currently in the NFL, told me Monday night, “it sounds like Graham Harrell might be the coach after the Alabama game,” after hearing all the coaching transactions being made.
That might be extreme but he is the second NFL coach in two days to say this weekend’s purge sounds like a perfect way to elevate Harrell.
Imagine not even doing a national search and making the Boy Wonder the head coach?
Can he at least run the ball and beat a good team before he gets anointed to lead USC?
Surely, Mike Bohn did not come out here just to keep Helton and replace him with Harrell, right? Right?
- Clay Helton would have made a great contestant on “Survivor.” Put him on an island with 13 assistant coaches and he is sure to be the only survivor.
I’m still amazed Helton can go into the living rooms of recruits and talk to parents about integrity after he threw 13 assistant coaches under the bus.
- Former USC football player Bill Holland has been named interim Senior Associate Athletic Director for Development. That sounds like the former job of Ron Orr, who was recently fired.
USC said it will hold a national search for a permanent replacement. It’s able to hold national searches for everyone but Helton.
Swim With Mike, Orr’s brainchild, will take place April 4.
