It feels like new strength coach Robert Stiner will report to Mike Bohn instead of Clay Helton.
Why else would Stiner leave Notre Dame and come to USC? Yes, he got a promotion but what if Helton gets fired?
Stiner had to get some assurance from his former Cincinnati boss that he would retain his job even if there was a coaching change.
That’s unusual at most schools because new football coaches usually bring in their own strength coaches.
But Stiner has Bohn as his safety net. He will work under Helton with the knowledge if things go sideways he has Bohn as a safety net.
