Texas is doing what USC refuses to do: Pay off the coach.
The Longhorns are spending $24 million to buy out Tom Herman and his coaching staff.
But Texas is not alone: Auburn paid Gus Malzahn $15 million. South Carolina paid Will Muschamp $13 million. Arizona paid Kevin Sumlin $8 million.
It is determined to keep Clay Helton and not pay him off.
Now I think it’s a joke that Texas would spend $24 million to hire a guy (Steve Sarkisian) who never won more than nine games at Washington or USC.
But at least Texas is spending money and doing something.
USC just wants to fool the fans into thinking things will magically get better.
