USC athletic director Mike Bohn is doing more media and he addressed the expectations for Clay Helton in an interview with the Athletic.
“We just talked about our mutual commitment to obviously meet the expectations of our fans and our expectations of our rich history, the expectations of our former players,” Bohn said. “All the constituents who are important. And together we’re going to work to do that.”
What does this mean? Nothing, really.
It sounds good but the proof will be in what Bohn does after the season. If USC goes 9-3, will Bohn have the authority/courage to fire Helton? That is the only way to judge.
“I think our role is USC has to establish itself as the gold standard in the league,” Bohn said.
That will be difficult under Helton.
