Tee Martin On Staying At USC

USC offensive coordinator Tee Martin has talked to ESPN about his contract extension and of course, it sounds a little over the top:

“I’m just excited to be here at USC, where the future is so bright, and working for somebody the caliber of Clay Helton,” Martin told ESPN. “There were some other opportunities, but you don’t leave USC for a lateral move. I want to help us get to that next level, and everything is in place here to do that.”

    More of the quote ” I tried like heck to get out of here but no one wants me. Gomer, well, he’s in over his head, he won’t let me call the plays, he keeps getting crackers from W. Kentucky to babysit me, but I’m gonna make some nice coin here for at least a year, and well, what else can I do and get this kind of coin, it’s not like I could get a real job. “

      “crackers from W. Kentucky”

      ROTFLMFAO!

      • LamontRaymond

        Except that those bumpkins from Western Kentucky – with virtually ZERO talent – stayed in the top 25 for a couple of years when these folks were there. Let’s not get so conceited that we can’t recognize that.

        • Cloud Shaman

          truth

          • timmay

            Fake news.

            10–5 C-USA under Lil Gomer as an assistant on the staff of Brohm? 1-7 record vs Power 5? Credential?

            1 week in #25 as an assistant is credentials?

            Bobby Petrino stocked them with talented derelicts in 2013 when he was in exile. Petrino didn’t want guys we hired.

          • WE ARE WESTERN KENTUCKY !!!!!

            We would be better but we keep losing our coaches, do you know how hard it is to get someone to work in Bowling Green Ky ??? I mean, when your basketball arena is named E. A. Diddle Arena, that kinda turns people off

          • Michael Guarino

            Maybe there were OTHER reasons Bobby didn’t want the guys from Western Kentucky. [Is it possible Petrino was holding out for blond graduate assistants who wanted to ride behind him on his motorcycle]?

        • Pudly76

          They’re doing okay now a Purdue too

          • USC jojo

            Small world.

          • USC jojo

            It sure is.

          • SucKiffin

            Hahaha … that HC at Purdue is damn good

        • WE ARE WESTERN KENTUCKY !!!!!

          Please stop taking our coaches !!!

        • SucKiffin

          That’s like given Goat and Snark credit for Pete’s great teams
          Jeff Brohm is a really good HC … SC should give him a strong look when Gomer is fired
          Hell Gomer won’t care he will just become an assistant or janitor to stay at USC , no be else will want him like T Bag

    • Rick S.

      Yes, You are Correct, [[[ GOMER ]]] it “fits” You PERFECTLY…

      DAH, WHAT’S “MY” NAME, DAH ??? !

      Hey “GOMER”, does 2 + 2 be fow ??????

      And “remember” (If “You” can, DAHHHHHHH), “Drugs” are NEVER good for the Brain…….

    • gotroy22

      So he’s whipped? Meeeeeoooooww—snap!!!!!!!!!!!

  • steveg

    Martin is either saying what is appropriate but untrue, or most everyone on here is wrong about the staff at USC. 2018 will tell the tale.

  • Tebow_Obama

    Tee Martin is excited that any football program is willing to cut him a check. And he gets to live in beautiful Southern California basically for doing nothing.

    “I want to help get us to the next level, and everything is in place here to do that*”
    *except a proficient O line and a game tested quarterback, please don’t get me started on the way we call plays or the graduate assistant…

  • Tebow_Obama

    Has Helton figured out what the hell Martin is going to do this coming season or are Martin’s duties going to keep changing on a game to game basis.

    Not like anyone cares, just throwing it out there.

    LOL!

    Carry on…as you were.

    • Brent4c

      So you say Helton and staff are horrible, but toute the talent he’s brought in. So what gives…if he’s terrible you must be a SW disciple who believes SC simply recruits itself. Most believe recruiting is a large piece of coaching.

      • Tebow_Obama

        USC does recruit itself.

        • Mrs Tool_Obama

          Why would a kid play for USC if the coaching staff is junk

  • Tebow_Obama

    Martin: “and working for somebody the caliber of Clay Helton”

    And that caliber would be “clueless” because any other head coach worth his weight in salt would have fired Martin’s arse after seeing Martin’s play calling first hand.

  • USCDAN1986

    Several members of this current staff will not be on the sidelines in 2019.

    Helton
    Pendergast
    Baxter
    Martin
    Connelly
    Qb coach
    And And And!

    The only two coaches I see having a lifeline for 2019 will be BKU and Colbert..

    • Lunderful

      Says who, Jack Del Rio? By the by, any recent word on his starting date other than “soon”?

      • USCDAN1986

        After signing day.. He’s working directly w- Swann .. For now!

        • RegalTrojan

          You mean as the HC or something else?

          • USCDAN1986

            Will find out tomorrow..

          • RegalTrojan

            Really? So it sounds like he may work as a consultant or similar. I actually think that’s a more likely scenario.

          • Jack B

            Now that wouldn’t be a bad idea at all. Same with an OL coach like Klemm – as an advisor only.

            Helton’s solid through the 2018 season. A nuclear bomb couldn’t dislodge him.

          • RegalTrojan

            If all these JDR rumors are true, it’s possible that the AD might see the possibility of a midseason disaster in the 2018 season. In other words, JDR may play the role of an alligator on Helton’s tail, and in case of him losing control of the team, he’ll probably come right in.

            Helton’s hardly a solid coach, but the only thing working for his job security at the moment is the number of wins in the last two seasons. Now with Darnold and other key players gone, he probably won’t be standing on a solid ground in 2018.

          • Jack B

            If JDR’s presence would just put Helton in a worse position, I doubt Swann would bring him in. As you point out, that might seriously undermine Helton and make it look like Swann was just trying to force him out, like with the 1-yr asst K restrictions.

            Thinking that way makes me doubt JDR would be brought in, in any capacity. It looks too much like he’s just a new head coach in waiting. Plus, what HC wants to take advice from some other former NFL coach on staff and in the John McKay Center. That whole arrangement just doesn’t sound copacetic to me now.

          • RegalTrojan

            Yes, this whole scenario isn’t going to help Helton in any way. And unless Swann has absolutely no trust in Helton’s coaching abilities to guide the team to a decent record, I don’t see it as a feasible arrangement for the program. Anyhow, I’m sure we’ll see about USCDAN1986’s claim soon enough.

          • RegalTrojan

            But who knows, JB? We can play devil’s advocate on our AD’s mind here. What if he feels that Helton’s is the type of guy who would perform better with pressure, rather than on his own pace and discipline? The AD guy wasn’t exactly born yesterday, and I’m sure he can ferret out people pretty much at a glance at this point in his life. My guess is he knows about the inner workings of Helton far better than we do.

          • steveg

            Yes it could. One erroneous remark, one inappropriate touch, or anything not pc and he would be gone in seconds.

          • David Keeling

            Yep, USC won the conference championship even if the conference sucked. You don’t fire a HC after that unless you want media grief.

          • SucKiffin

            Darnold and playing 15 teams with 2nd team qbs has kept Gomer around this long … Steve Wonder can see he is an amateur and will be dumped asap

          • SucKiffin

            a 37-0 loss at Stanford
            a 58-7 loss at Texas
            a Khalil Tate 7 td at Zona
            can dislodge Gomer

          • USCDAN1986

            Im getting that vibe until Swann pulls the plug on Helton.

    • SucKiffin

      Nansen will be long gone that Sark buddy is a jive turkey hanger on …like Sark but without the jive turkey. Sark is full of wild turkey

  • Tebow_Obama

    That’s not saying much. Especially when you factor that USC has 3 times the 4 & 5 star talent that UCLA does.

    Come on Dan, lets try and keep it real.

    • USCDAN1986

      50-0 ..LOL ✌

      • Tebow_Obama

        I’m more concerned with how the Trojans look after those 52-6 and 49-14 beat downs that Helton embarrassed the Trojans with than carrying on about some 50-0 beat down of some lowly piece of crap UCLA team that took place years ago.

        • USCDAN1986

          11-3

          • Tebow_Obama

            11-3 vs soft teams, 0-1 vs an overrated WAZZU team and 0-2 with a major Helton arse kicking handed him by the Irish and a prime time big stage b*tch slapping handed Helton by Meyer and Ohio State…and you’re proud of that?

            Damn, that’s pathetic.

          • USCDAN1986

            6-7. Your bruins stink.. So chirping crazy how awful USC .is downright stupid!

          • Tebow_Obama

            They’re not my Bruins, I was attending USC Trojan football games when you were still chittin’ yellow.

          • USCDAN1986

            1967..

          • Chris

            Lies.

          • Mrs Tool_Obama

            What’s pathetic is the expectations you have placed on this team.
            Could Saban and coaching staff of won a national title with this team

        • SucKiffin

          Those losses will look like nail biters with the drubbings coming next year

    • Cloud Shaman

      overrated talent

  • Rick S.

    Tee Martin is a [ FABULOUS ] Recruiter !

    He’s a Bright Individual !

    When one thinks of Trojan Offensive Coordinators, Norm Chow comes to mind !!!

    Tough place to be…

    Play-Calling-Must-Get-BETTER !

    As for Clay Helton, PERFECT for the JOB !!!

    Clay can’t simply cut loose (Fire) just any Coach, not within this time frame, or then Clay is looking for Scapegoats with others having no faith in Him ? !

    It takes time !!!!!

    EsPecially after a [ 30 ] loss on “Sanctions” ! ?

    Ohio State was a game between a team filled with “MEN” and a game against a team filled with [[ BOYS ]], with a few Men sprinked in… !

    Did anyone notice ???

    Darnold was overwhelmed, Offensive Line missing a few Cylinders [[ All-Season-LONG ]], stupid fumble, AT-ABSOLUTELY-THE-WORST-TIME-POSSIBLE……..

    Was “I” they only one at that moment seeing quick Notre Dame flashbacks ???

    AND-THAT-COIN-TOSS ?

    WHAT-WAS-THAT ?????????????????

    It was a frisbee toss !

    Ohio State Heads-Up, was-I-the-ONLY-one-Who-saw-That ????????

    Ohio State differs, the DEFENSE who [[[ SHUT-OUT ]]] Ohio State in the second has to come out “second”, fumble never happens, USC Offense gets first crack at about the Trojan 35 – 40 yard line, different game, that “TOSS” was the game, MOMENTUM MATTERS, how-was-that-allowed ? [ REFS WERE RIGHT THERE AND SAW IT COMPLETELY ] !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Game hadn’t yet started, that wasn’t a good sign !

    Forget it, it’s passed, Team is now different, Fantastic (Limited in #####’s) Recruiting Class comin in, it takes time to Win National Championships, when “MEN” play against Men…

    Clancy Pendergast, YOU-DA-MAN !!!!!!!

    Imagine what Killa-Clancy could do with a FULLY-STOCKED – [ D ] ???????????????????????????????

    That Cotton Bowl “should” have been 72 – 0 !

    • Tebow_Obama

      Helton has been with the Trojans since Kiffin was hired and Helton took over the team after sanctions expired.

      Helton can’t coach worth a crap…tell your story walkin’, Bozo.

      • steveg

        You post to much, with nothing to say, I have to block you again.

        • Tebow_Obama

          First of all genius, it’s “too much” not “to much”.

          Second, I wish more idiots such as yourself would block me.

          LOL!

  • BBScBaby

    Wolfies sources strike out again. Last nite Wolfie said assistants were being given only one year contracts.

  • Tebow_Obama

    247Sports ranks Tee Martin #89 on it’s recruiter ranking list.

    That must have been why Lynn Swann and the other idiots in USC’s athletic dept. gave Martin a contract extension, everyone knows how USC absolutely loves being mediocre.

    USC Football – Where expectations of returning the program to glory takes a back seat to being content with the status quo of second rate coaching running the show.

    Lynn Swann is pathetic, huge disappointment and an absolute embarrassment.

  • Tebow_Obama

    The only reason why Tee Martin is staying at USC is because no other football team (Pee Wee league, high school, college or NFL) wanted anything to do with him and his lousy coaching/play calling ability.

  • Arthur Jury

    I rank Tee Martin right down there with Hue Jackson in terms of USC o-coordinators.

    • Tebow_Obama

      There you go, good comparison.

  • Rock2112

    I am ready to call BS on this whole JDR sitting around Heritage Hall thing. A guy like JDR doesn’t come and go each morning from the USC campus and not draw mainstream media interest, unless he can somehow convincingly sell that he’s there to brush up on his college-level Spanish. This kind of stuff can only have the effect of spooking recruits for no damn reason. We all know CH isn’t going anywhere until at least the end of 2018, and if he wins another 11 games next season, he’s not going anywhere until the end of 2019 at the earliest. We’re not Nebraska — chopping heads out of sheer delusions of grandeur. He’s done a lot of good things here. CH has upgraded USC from the Sark days, even if he still has a long way to go. He has stabilized the program. He recruits well. He has kept our players out of trouble for the most part. He runs a clean program, and doesn’t embarrass us off the field (yes, we HAVE been embarrassed on the filed a few times). And he won eleven games and played in New Years bowls two years in a row, going 1-1. We wanted more, fine. But he ain’t going anywhere for a while so the focus should be on getting CH and that staff what they need to succeed, improve, and bring in another great class of athletes. Not on chopping everybody’s heads off.

    • Jack B

      Mike Riley, probably the only guy on the planet nicer than Helton, went 19-19 over 3 years at NEB and was only 12-14 in conference. NEB gave him all the head-chopping room they possibly could until the jury was way in – Riley wasn’t gonna cut it at even a low level. NEB also had to move like yesterday because Scott Frost was super hot.

      USC’s a long way from that head-chopping moment. Things might be a little different if we had a Scott Frost-like target on our radar, but we don’t.

      The only real question is, what does Helton really have to accomplish in 2018 to get to 2019? That’s gonna stir a lot of debate I predict.

      • Rock2112

        I wasn’t talking about Riley — he never should have been hired and we all knew that when it happened. I am talking about Bo Pelini — fired after three straight seasons finishing 9-3.

        • Jack B

          But Pelini’s nuts. He wasn’t fired because of his record, clearly. He was let go because he even told Husker fans they could kiss his arse and he trashed his own AD publicly. Pelini was a real groundbreaker.

          • SucKiffin

            that and kept getting beat by Whisky 67-14
