USC fans are not suprised by the lackluster victories the past two weeks. And I’m seeing some parents of players are starting to become more vocal on social media.
But what does Mike Bohn think?
If someone cornered Bohn, he would whisper that he knows Clay Helton is not a great coach.
But . . . Bohn and his minions hired Todd Orlando, Donte Williams and the rest of the new coaching staff.
So far, those new coaches have produced a defense that looks remarkably similar to the Clancy Pendergast edition. At a higher cost, thanks to the salaries of the defensive staff.
Bohn also poured money into the new hype video dept. and added staff members because there had to be an alibi for Helton’s poor recruiting/performance.
The bottom line is Carol Folt and Bohn don’t want to buyout Helton and he is going to produce ugly wins over poor Pac-12 opponents.
So Bohn can point to Helton’s record but he knows he is defending an inferior product. Sooner or later, Folt will have to deal with it too.
What happens next year when all these juniors and seniors go pro? The team will be worse.
