USC Fires Clay Helton

About time this guy is gone. So much wasted talent under his watch. Constant let downs in big games. Long time coming!
Well that was fast

should have happened after last year at the very least. People have been calling for his head for a long time.
As Nick said....

Long time coming. He isn't a good coach.
Loss to Stanford...

was awful. Especially after Stanford looked so piss poor versus K-State.

I still think SC is still a good job with the right person.
Why did they bother keeping him

If they were going to do this after one loss.

I think it was a combination of getting demolished by Stanford as a double digit favorite at home and also week 1 looking not so good against an "inferior" opponent in SJSU.
Jason Garrett!

As long as he can recruit I think he would do well in college.
Maybe they can hire

Helton's tenure at SC was...blah. His best team was '17, which I believe was Darnold's last year there. And even that season, ND kicked their ass, Haha.
Long, long time coming.

He was supposed to be an offensive guru, and they switched to an air raid using someone else’s offense?

But the absolute bottom line, besides the losing(at least to SC standards), is the recruiting. They are losing so many top California recruits, and they aren’t even close to bringing in top kids from other states.

Kiffin and Sark had limitations because of rule violations, but they still recruited really well.

USC admissions have become more competitive in recent years. It's not Stanford, but it's tougher to get into than it used to be, and the Varsity Blues scandal probably made them tighten up on athletes as well.

But yes, USC has a huge endowment, a great football tradition, a big TV audience, lots of national expsosure, a very nice campus, it's in Los Angeles... They should be able to recruit.
Oregon is crushing

Recruiting in CA. USC needs to reverse that.
