If Carol Folt is telling the truth that USC has a $300-$500 million operational deficit for the upcoming fiscal year, then why isn’t its highest-paid employee taking a pay cut?
I mean, seriously, Clay Helton is making videos with his picturesque ocean view in the background and probably getting around $4 million but he can’t take a 10 percent cut?
He went 13-12 the past 2 years, he should feel obligated to return some salary. More importantly, is USC going to get to a point where it lays off some employees while Helton could return $400,000?
He should do it to pay for all those digital media hires in the offseason that are working a lot harder than him.
