    The one guy none of us want to see go. Nansen and BKU are probably up there, too.

    • LamontRaymond

      Time to back up the truck for the guy (relatively). Make him the highest position group coach in the nation. Not like you’re using that money on a QB coach, etc.

    • peter

      Just confirmed by Ryan Abraham. He’s been hired by KC

      • 04Trojan

        Well that sucks.

        • steveg

          I never expected USC would keep him for long, he is just too good and the money is better in the show.

          • peter

            Report from interview with him,he stated Helton and Swann fought hard to keep him.He’s much closer to where his family calls home.

  • john holmes

    USC is run like a Mountain West Conference school

    • rusoviet

      Hey ‘Wonderland killings’ you nailed it – exactly what we are – a AAA for the Big 5 top tier schools.

  • Paul Muad’dib

    Wow. He’s most likely leaving then.

  • GOMER HELTON

    The best coach on the staff

  • gotroy22

    What a revolting development!

  • BION LaSHIER

    OLD TROJANS NEVER DIE

  • BION LaSHIER

    FIELD MARSHALL DUFFIELD SPOKE TO ME———-HE WAS GREAT!!!!!!!!!

  • rusoviet

    This is what happens to any coaching staff/program that is in its death throes….those with talent are both seen and are seeing what is out there to get off before the whole thing capsizes.

    • Brent4c

      Coaches getting hired by the NFL is a program in death throws? Wait I thought they all sucked and wouldn’t be hired by anyone else? Which one is it?

      • GOMER HELTON

        One coach, not hired by Helton but Swann, gets an NFL gig, let’s see if any of the other dead weight gets hired away

        • USC jojo

          He was recommended and Helton looked at the guy(his resume) and what he could do. It wasn’t Swann looking for a running backs coach and telling Helton to hire the guy.

          • Gabby

            It’s hard to argue with stupidity

  • Fred Sampson

    If anybody was going to get cherry picked, then you knew it would be him … smh

    • Jack B

      Come on Fred! You’ve gotta be happy. USC’s assts are getting picked off like birds on a wire. This could just be the beginning of a great shake-up. And what college RB coach won’t take a promotion to an NFL RB job? None, that’s who. You should be celebrating. Think of all the possibilities!

  • Pudly76

    Done deal..

  • GOMER HELTON

    Good for McCullough, hope he has a long career in the NFL

    • Jethro G Sabbath

      I agree. Are you feeling okay?

      • GOMER HELTON

        Fine, how about you?

  • GOMER HELTON

    Look for Gomer to raid W. Kentucky’s staff for their RB coach. Who is that coach ? Mike Sanford Sr. He fits the FFF Gomer mantra, gets the USC family thing being an ex USC assistant, and he’s from that powerhouse W. Kentucky where we seem to get all of our coaches these days.

    Or maybe Gomer will just put an add on Craigslist for a new RB coach

  • Jack B

    We lost a great one. Gonna be hard to replace a talent like that.

    • steveg

      Time for USC to get busy, or will they hire from within again.

      • Jack B

        It’s Showtime for USC. The future is right now.

        • steveg

          You think Swann will push the eject button on Helton now?

          • USCDAN1986

            He could!

          • Jack B

            Come on! No way. This close to LOI Day? USC needs a good more 10 signees.

            Swann wants stability I’m telling ya. He wouldn’t allow a train wreck right now and Helton has basically followed Swann’s instructions up to this point.

            Swann has 2018 to show Swann he’s got what it takes and with the sudden departures of Tee and Deland, now’s his perfect chance.

          • steveg

            I haven’t seen anything on Tee yet.

          • Jack B

            That’s per USCDan. I’m buying it.

          • steveg

            My whole family is going crazy with Tee leaving.

          • USCDAN1986

            WR coaching position on Gruden’s staff is the word.

          • Jack B

            We know Tee doesn’t want to coach QBs and Colbert would probably be good at WR coach for USC. So it fits, if he makes more as a NFL WR coach than what he was making at USC. I don’t see it as much of a move up, personally. Tee wouldn’t even interview for anything in college less than a HC job.

          • steveg

            The fact he gets a shot at the pros, works not only with Gruden, but an excellent staff of other assistants is a career move for him.

    • peter

      I hope it’s a wake up call to Swann and Helton…

      • USCDAN1986

        Swann.. Who cares what Helton thinks!

        • Gabby

          Some of your comments leave me scratching my head…….just saying

          • USCDAN1986

            Why?

      • steveg

        I am sure it is. They are perhaps working on it right now.

    • USCDAN1986

      Martin is done too.. He’s headed to Oakland!’

  • steveg

    Even if this team was the NC, the Chiefs or someone else would come calling. Deland is a great one, we lucked out getting him for as long as we did.

  • USCDAN1986

    Tee Martin is gone! Heading to Oakland!

    • rusoviet

      Source?

      • USCDAN1986

        Intel from the Raiders.. I have a 28 year background in Sports management..

        • rusoviet

          The sole source I have seen is Wolf and this blog site from yesterday.

          • USCDAN1986

            Saw that but Tee interviewed for the HC job..he must have impressed to warrant a job offer from Gruden..who will make Tee a better coach.

          • steveg

            Ya, he can get a big name and come back and save USC from all the damage done by Helton. lol

          • Michael Guarino

            Hope he can get a big name in one year, steveg. We might need him in 2019.
            #MaybeThat’sBeenThePlanAllAlong…….

          • rusoviet

            That does make sense.

          • USCDAN1986

            Tee’s is expected to be named WR coach for Okland per reports!

          • USCDAN1986

            Reggie MacKenzie is GM of the Raiders.. Jalen’s dad..

      • USCDAN1986

        I also looked at the 247 site to see the chatter, seems someone got the same info..

    • Jack B

      Wow. Things are a shakin’ now. This could be wild!

      • USCDAN1986

        Its looking that way!

      • steveg

        With any other school I would say fasten your seatbelt, but here I say just hang loose.

    • FranklinTrojan

      let me guess, Helton will promote Callaway to OL/OC and Colbert as the WR coach, let the fun continue!

      • Jack B

        Colbert will stick I bet. I still have hope Callaway will get the boot though the promotion of Ellis works against that.

        • steveg

          Give Callaway the RB’s Hire the two guys from SEattle that got let go the OC and O line coach

          • Jack B

            I wouldn’t give Callaway the RBs. But everything else works fine for me, especially Cable. He doesn’t mess around and might like it being back in L.A.

          • Michael Guarino

            I agree. Cable is an outstanding O-Line coach. But he can only do so much. The issue is —will he have more to work with at USC than he did at Seattle?

          • steveg

            We all know what he has to work with, question is can he straighten it out. If he is a no bs guy perhaps he could.

          • Michael Guarino

            Cable is SO much better than Callaway (funny how no one wants to take Callaway from us, isn’t it)? But Cable is a “Type A Plus”—could a guy like Helton co-exist with a guy like that?

          • steveg

            I think Helton is mature enough to handle it.

          • Michael Guarino

            If he can work with Cable (who has a history of extreme toughness with players and fellow coaches), Helton might just save his own job.
            Cable is the answer to saving our next QB’s butt.

          • steveg

            Michael, get on a dang plane and go make him an offer. Let me know how it comes out.

          • USC jojo

            Maybe he’s got some nice thorobreds and you can re-enact the “Corlione offer” he can’t refuse.

          • Michael Guarino

            Ha! He’d have to insult Italians first. Then it’s horse blood all over the nice silk sheets.

          • Michael Guarino

            Right now? Okay. What’s our offer?

          • steveg

            Just wing it. We can call it in after you get back.

          • Michael Guarino

            Message received, steveg!

        • peter

          I know nothing about the OL coach at SDSU. Yet the school has had back to back 2000 yard rushers.
          Curious about their line play and coaching

      • USCDAN1986

        Maybe this will force Swann to pull the trigger on Helton.. Plenty of good options out there..Wild!

        • steveg

          For HC? Who are you thinking about? Saban? Meyer? Gruden is gone. Harbaugh is a wash out.

          • USCDAN1986

            Del Rio, Miles, for starters.. USC could talk to the SD Aztecs coach.. Who knows.. I just want Helton gone!

          • Jack B

            Helton’s here for at least 2018. But for all those who hated Tee and his direct into the LOS runs, they may have got their wish.

            Will be intriguing to see how this affects recruiting and Feb 7. Tee was a real force there.

          • steveg

            I knew something was going to happen but I didn’t figure on before signing day.

          • Jack B

            I didn’t. I thought maybe we’d get rid of Callaway somehow. That was just my wish. I never dreamed Tee and Deland would suddenly be gone on 1/11.

          • peter

            Agree it will be intriguing. Clay makes sure to be involved with recruits. Both coaches ( if Tee gone )
            Will have left for NFL.not another school. Which just sets more intrigue. Also shows how early signing day solidifys players before coaching changes.
            There’s opportunity here,for sake of program I hope Swann steps up and Clay matures as HC.

          • Jack B

            We should be eternally grateful for the early signing period. What a godsend.

          • steveg

            Rocky Long is 67 and locked into SD. Wittingham, Niumatalolo, PJ Fleck.

          • GOMER HELTON

            JDR is the only option, Miles is a moron and the SDSU coach is old

        • Gabby

          Relax, Helton isn’t going anywhere

          • USCDAN1986

            Not yet!

          • Gabby

            And if he finishes with 10 or more wins, then what?

          • USCDAN1986

            He won’t!

          • Gabby

            And if he does?…….

          • USCDAN1986

            He wont.

  • steveg

    Seriously.

  • Jethro G Sabbath

    Somebody with the Chiefs watched some USC football this season.

    • USCDAN1986

      Marcus Allen ?

      • Jethro G Sabbath

        Is he currently working with the Chiefs?

  • Fred Sampson

    I’m sure Clay Helton’s gonna go after the running back coach at Montana A&M, or Detroit Tech

    • Lunderful

      He has his eye on his cousin Carl at Southeastern Kentucky U. where he currently interns in the tape room. Carl is a very good listener.

  • Fred Sampson

    These coaches are starting to realize, that Clay Helton is a Bozo, they see what we see, because it’s obvious

  • Pete

    As per 247sports Deland is gone to the chiefs

  • Paul Muad’dib

    I’m just hoping USC doesn’t promote the water boy or towel boy to RB coach…

  • PugsDaddy

    This is the only Coach Wolf never mentioned EVER. So he must have been pretty good

  • David Keeling

    You have one program where the administration will give the HC the support he needs to build a championship program and then you have an administration that won’t but still holds its hand out for all the TV money it can get. That is the difference between the other big 5 conferences and the PAC-12. I’m not saying I think Helton is good enough to build a championship program at USC, but if you can’t keep at least some of the better coaches on an already poor coaching staff, then you wonder if the administration cares at all about USC football.
