How is USC going to replace Tyson Helton?
Clay Helton would not say much about it Tuesday. Meanwhile, offensive coordinator Tee Martin did a complete flip-flop. In late October, he complained that he wasn’t the quarterbacks coach and doesn’t get to talk to Sam Darnold enough.
“One of the tougher things is that I’m not the quarterbacks coach, so I don’t get to meet with him right before the game or on the practice field because I have receivers to coach … so there is a little communication gap there.”
But here was Martin on Tuesday: “I’ve coached quarterbacks in my career and got bored by doing it. When you get a taste of coaching wide receivers, it’s so much fun.
“I feel it’s best for me to be in the (wide receivers’ meeting) room. It gives me an opportunity to be around everyone.”
And what about talking to Darnold: ““I talk to him when I need to talk to him.”
Does Martin even think that his quotes contradict each other?
