Cal strength coach Torre Becton is expected to go to Texas, according to Horns247.
Becton spent 2016 as an assistant strength coach at USC and turned down Clay Helton’s offer to be the Trojans’ strength coach in 2019, which led to the hiring of Aaron Ausmus.
Becton was considered a logical-but-long shot candidate to replace Ausmus. He worried two years ago how long Helton would have a job so there was little reason to not worry about it again.
Who will Helton hire now?
Coach Bohn will probably hire the new strength coach anyways. Hopefully from the SEC or Big Ten. Maybe he can hire the Cincinnati strength coach as a precursor to Luke Fickell.
- USC president Carol Folt sent out this statement on twitter and Instagram on Wednesday night.
As you can guess, many of the responses involved Helton.
