USC Morning Buzz: When To Shuffle Things?

Other than Tyson Helton’s departure to Tennessee, the USC coaching staff is intact. But the amount of rumors of departures/firings might be unprecedented for a team that won 11 games. Here’s the key: Will any changes be made before Signing Day?

If USC is going to make big changes, will it worry if recruits care? Then again, with only three coaches who actually recruit, maybe it will not matter. All I know is there are rumors every day about staff shuffles.

    • Pudly76

      What stuff??

      • Sas

        I was reading an article on CBS about recruiting finishes and they think USC will finish #2 on signing day.

        • peter

          I hear from a average * rating that is possible. From a total class R.Abrams believes 5-7 depending on number we can sign. I think around 4-5 .Thinking we have between 20/22.
          Kicker and McKenzie are 2018.class count.

          • Sas

            I think we miss on one kid (Sewell) but close strong with the rest. Finish #2-#4

          • usc fan

            USC needs Williams he in our back yard. ENIS needs to come as well sewell too.

        • Pudly76

          I’m in..we’re number 2 in avg per recruit already..if we get everyone on the list, we could end up with a very good class.

    This all changes the moment JDR is announced as our new head coach, defensive coordinator, special teams coach, DB coach, and offensive line coach. Currently holding breath.

    • Cloud Shaman

      JDR had signed a 4 year extension worth 20 million. He will sit out a year before pursues another job.

      • USCDAN1986

        You sure ?

      • steveg

        Why? Football is his passion, why would he want to watch on tv for a season.

    • steveg

      You think about it, everyone from equipment managers on up are holding their breath waiting for (or if) the JDR announcement.

  • GOMER HELTON

    Does W Kentucky have anyone left for Gomer to hire ?

      Mascot?! Lol

  • party_opponent

    Did someone forget about a certain RB coach position?

    • Paul Muad’dib

      That’s what I was thinking.

  • LamontRaymond

    All you know are rumors…. great.

  • USCDAN1986

    Keep your ear to the wall, huge USC coaching news is brewing! ✌#JDR

    • Rock2112

      Assuming this is all as super secret hush hush as you are suggesting, then you are doing a very poor job of keeping it super secret hush hush.

      • USCDAN1986

        Some info is already getting out there..

        • Rock2112

          Alright, great. Well then throw us a link to it.

          • Chris

            For real. Where is it getting out?

          • USCDAN1986

            247

          • Pudly76

            I haven’t seen them yet..who specifically is tweeting it?

          • USCDAN1986

            Trojans Rivals on twitter.

          • Rock2112

            That is not a link and searching 247 for “Del Rio” turns up nothing new. If it is “out there,” help us out here. Look, unlike others here, I am not accusing you of making this all up, jury is out there. But if there is real info “out there,” just direct us to it so we can see what’s going on.

          • USCDAN1986

            Go to the USC 247 site.. The boards are chirping.. The FO USC board.. Has JDR as the discussion header, also learned Clancy may leave for the NFL..

          • Pudly76

            His contract is up this year..he signed for two years originally..

          • USCDAN1986

            Late last night USC rivals shared info.. I will not pay for info.. The header was Major USC coaching chances coming!

    • usc fan

      I have not heard anything about JDR in a week last I heard swann and company reached out to him at what capacity who knows.

      • USCDAN1986

        He’s been on campus the past several days.. Should know more soon..

        • usc fan

          Wow I know his name was brought up for usc. Also heard it’s why certain recuirts signed early

          • USCDAN1986

            Lots of chatter now of Pendy leaving..if true.. Then JDRs hire will go public.. Recruits know whats happening, I remember you shared that, and I was told the same. My intel has been good.. See what happens..

          • Chris

            Your intel said Clay Helton was stepping down to OC and he was taking head coach position.

          • USCDAN1986

            What?. Intel said JDR will be on staff as OC or Helton would be demoted.. I question that, With Pendy possibily leaving opens up a JDR hire as DC . and as we all know its a HC in waiting hire. Either way Helton is not in Swann’s future plans.. Pendy and Bradford really wouldnt be a huge loss.. Im a wait see kinda guy.. Im not looking for attention.. I get enough at home and give enough.. Im just hoping changes for the better are coming.. Helton is limited in his options with hiring staff.. With JDR we get a great guy with years of contacts from the nfl and cfb.. ..

          • usc fan

            Yep recruits are starting to talk I think you maybe correct with JDR coming as dc. I’m assuming details of contract are being worked out. Explains why Bradford looking for a job. I’m hearing pendergast is gone too, from players.

  • Pudly76

    Solomon Enis telling people he’s waiting to see if a spot opens up at SC…yeah, recruiting is hurting..Hahaha!

    • USCDAN1986

      OG is in.. How many spots open ?

      • Pudly76

        Thinking twenty when everything washes out..+or- 2. There is a lot of chatter about a big DE out of MO, would be nice get with Trout. And hopefully Solo.

        • USCDAN1986

          Read ‘Helton’ was lookimg at 2 grad transfers for the line…Now I cant find the 247 link.

  • Eastern Ave.

    Steve Spurrier Jr. – WKU QB coach is next to move west…lol!

    USC will be fine…
    “Its the Jimmy;s and Joe’s not the X’s and O’s”
    We have fine talent Right?… ;D

    (Tongue in cheek.)

    Oh Magoo!

  • usc fan

    LIKE I SAID BEFORE stuff is brewing at USC if your a 5star or 4 star player your crazy to turn down USC this team will win a national championship very soon. then they will keep wining them.

  • jim

    Good. They need some changes on the staff.
