I don’t care how small a program Georgia Southern might or might not be, I find it crazy that Clay Helton will apparently be unemployed for only two months.
Yahoo and other media outlets are reporting Helton is finalizing a deal to become the new coach at Georgia Southern.
Will this reduce what USC has to pay him? Helton will reportedly make $800,000 per year in a five-year deal.
Will he take some coaches with him? Maybe John Baxter, whom he said was the best special teams coach in the country until he fired him. He can hire Clancy Pendergast!
It might only be Georgia Southern, but it’s still failing upward in my book.
Which reminds me, how is Steve Sarkisian doing?
