USC wants to hire Oregon cornerbacks coach Donte Williams but the Ducks are making a counteroffer to try and keep him.
It really says something that USC or Todd Orlando identified an Oregon assistant to bolster the coaching staff. Oregon has become the program to emulate in the Pac-12.
Just a few years ago, it seemed like USC was the top program but that was due more to Sam Darnold. Still, Clay Helton’s been in the Pac-12 since 2010, why does he need to steal a coach from Oregon? Why didn’t he have the vision to see what it takes to be the top program in the Pac-12?
USC has the most advantages of any program in the West. But Helton needs to go to Oregon to get an assistant who can coach and recruit?
That is the key: Name a USC assistant the past 10 years who could coach and recruit? The first one who pops in my head was Deland McCullough, and he split after one year for the Kansas City Chiefs.
