Who Will Clay Helton Hire?

USC still has a vacancy for a running backs coach. It doesn’t appear like Western Kentucky can supply anyone. So where will USC find the next Deland McCullough, who was at Indiana before coming to USC. USC got lucky with McCullough. Can it hit the jackpot two straight years?

One potential problem: Coaches might view USC as a one-year job as far as security goes in case the Trojans lose more than expected next season.

What Would You Do?

All things being equal, Sam Darnold always seemed like someone that actually might come back for his junior year. I certainly heard that from many USC fans. I always thought it was 50-50 going into the 2017 season.

But going into next year, Darnold knew he would have a 29-year-old first-time quarterbacks coach. Now it might be an awesome first-time coach. But would you want to risk your NFL stock and possibility of being the No. 1 pick on that chance?
