USC Makes Donte Williams Associate Head Coach

Cornerbacks coach Donte Williams has added the title “associate head coach” according to a press release by USC today.

“This promotion reflects the immediate impact that Donte has made and the respect he has earned since joining our program,” Helton said. “We have seen that impact both with the improved performance of the players he has coached and in his recruiting accomplishments. With this expanded role, he will further his growth as a coach and will be able to make a continued impact in all areas of our program.”

Williams makes around $900,000 per season so maybe this is USC’s way of making him feel more important since he doesn’t even coach the safeties, just the cornerbacks.

USC noted in its press release that its “pass defense in 2020 allowed just 216.3 yards per game, its fewest since 2013.”

I would note USC faced first-year starting QBs in four of its six games (Arizona, Utah, Washington State, Oregon).

And yes, I know Jake Bentley started at South Carolina but he had not started for Utah and was thrust into the game after Cameron Rising got hurt. And Rising was making his first career start.

  1. Scottie, could you post a warning in your blog posts before including a Helton quote? I just can’t stomach reading anything he says anymore. Something like “Warning – Helton quote ahead. Take precautions if needed.”

    Thanks for coming back to host the best blog in sports. Happy 2021 to you.

      1. Yeah, 67. Good to have Scott back. He has this wonderful impulse to tell the truth.

    1. I agree. Scott , I also thank you. But do not give a good g…a d… who they hire as long as Helton is here. It is a waste.

        I know this site has a moderator because I know posts disappear. Sadly in a day or so the important points of the post show up as new ideas from Scot (spelled wrong to avoid moderator interference) however you can see that the trojandude207 post is authentic. Each email generates a new avitar. Look at ‘Fuck You’ posts. At 2:24 am (post time) she has a golden avitar. At 3:35 am she has a lavender avatar. Finally at 3:58 am she has a red avitar.

        Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the artist formerly known as BruinRob. Much like Charlie Bucket, A.K.A. Tebowbama, BruinRob has had a long and infamous career posting his constant BS on this blog, beginning around 2009. Here are some of the career lowlights of BruinRob. *BruinRob is a long time resident of Cerritos and has been employed at the Cerritos McDonald’s for quite some time. He is a three time Golden Spatula winner and has enrolled in just about every class at Cerritos C.C., without earning that elusive Associate Arts Degree.

        *BruinRob spends a lot of his time touting the greatness of UCLA, despite the fact that he’s never attended the school, aside from never attending a UCLA basketball/football game, even though tickets are relatively easy to come by. *BruinRob really came into his own during the 2011 season.

        After the epic 50-0 beatdown of USC, BruinRob claimed that he and his “two kids” were verbally and physically harassed before, during, and after the game. *Two weeks later, BruinRob claimed that he and his “girlfriend” were going to drive in a convertible up the 101 to San Francisco to see UCLA get thumped by Illinois in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl.

        It was during this time that BruinRob got exposed by a 12 year old for his DateMeLA profile. A link was posted and on that site there was BruinRob in all of his glory. All types of anti-USC propaganda and a portrait of BruinRob in a grey suit.

        By the looks of it, he goes around 5’7″-245 lbs.

        *For two seasons after that, BruinRob did exact some revenge on USC when Brett Hundley single handedly tore USC up three games in a row. This is when BruinRob changed his name to “UCLAOwnsLA”, mimicking the UCLA flavor of the month coach Jim Mora.

        He soon changed it to his current monicker of “JustOwns” after USC sent UCLA and Josh Rosen packing three years in a row. *BruinRob’s anti USC dystopia hit an all time high shortly after it was announced that USC would be playing Penn State in the 2017 Rose Bowl.

        He went on an all day rant about how the Bowl Selection Committee was violating their own rules by choosing USC over Colorado, who just lost the Pac-12 title game to UW. He conveniently left out the fact that USC beat both Colorado and UW that season.

        *But this was nothing compared to the Mother of all Meltdowns during the fourth quarter of the 2017 Rose Bowl. I was at that epic comeback and when I got back home I read this blog and let me tell you, BruinRob was strutting around like a Bantam Rooster during the Third Quarter. But as the Fourth Quarter began winding down, you saw him going absolutely haywire, culminating when USC won in the final seconds.

        *After that, BruinRob seemed to disappear for some time, keeping a really low profile. But now with USC sucking hind tit so to speak, he’s back spewing his constant garbage. FIGHT ON!

      5. I love that you were outed once again, Charlie Bucket! BWWWWWWWWAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Trojandude207 1d ago Well this IS interesting. I am not sure if this site is for me anymore. Each email address used generates a unique symbol that represents the email address. One person on this page has 10 such symbols generated for his username. That is some next level trolling. And none of messages upon this thread has anything to do with the the purpose of the thread. It has developed into a prepubescent name calling.

  4. Isn’t it usually the case that if there’s a “promotion” to an associate or assistant head coaching position that it’s a coordinator that gets the nod, rather than a position coach?*

    Why this guy, and why now?

    * Marv Goux was named assistant head coach by John Robinson in 1977. Am not sure if he was DC at the time or not.

  5. I should add that Folt may be laying the groundwork to preemptively keep Urban Meyer off campus. When Gomer inevitably stumbles and bumbles his way through another disappointing season and is let go, there will be an immediate announcement that the associate head coach is being promoted. There will be no “interim” period, no national coaching search, no anything. Get used to it Trojans, Donte Williams is going to be the next head coach.

  6. Let’s face it, the powers that be at USC try to placate the fan base by making
    announcements that are seemingly going to move the program to a higher level. All the while skirting the move that we all know needs to be made if
    the program is to get back to the level at which it once performed.
    Don’t forget: Jesus, wife, and Victory Bell.
    I almost want to puke.

  7. Although there is always room for improvement, they were 42nd in pass defense. That’s not bad. But the real problem they need to fix is the O-Line. They’ve been promising to fix that for a number of years and we are still at ground zero and I don’t expect that to change in 2021 or anytime soon with the current staff. The fact is, they don’t know how to change it.

    1. The O-line was an issue in ’16 against ‘Bama. Then again in ’18 against Ohio State. Then again this year against Oregon. It will be an issue next year as well, probably even more with AVT leaving.

      1. I’m sure Harrell would like his own guy as o-line coach —but he’s too much of a wimp to demand it. [btw, How can we really evaluate Harrell or our running backs when we’ve got Drevno coaching the o-line]?

    1. Very funny. [I’ll probably never even come close to 80].
      I was wondering about Pudly, also — I’d hate to think he’s taking that Oregon loss too seriously. Outside of problems on the o-line (which can partially get resolved by a change in coaches) there are lots of positives going into 2021. The d-line and d-backs are playing with enthusiasm and McCoy, London, Christon (not that Helton gave him a chance to do anything) and Slovis should provide lots of offense next year. So…don’t be sad, Pudly!
      Happy New Year, Cal75! You are a kick!

  8. I was scratching my head, which is rapidly growing bald, trying to understand why a position coach would suddenly be promoted to assistant head coach. I know he’s pushed recruiting up, but Helton says USC recruits itself. Maybe he’s good with translating football terms in math formulas.
    What I do know is relief from Helton is still very far off. He wouldn’t be allowed to make this change if he wasn’t going to be there.
    Happy New Year Trojans and Trolls. Everyone is in the same boat for the time being so stay away from the gunnels.
