Re: Sound familiar fellow 49ers?
I wrote the Chancellor at USC awhile back and told him to hire Coach O... i did receive a response.....
Also wrote Lindsey Thirrey at LA Times same thing and she published my note in the paper....
I swear Helton and CDM are identical twins. Two horrible coaches that haven't done squat but keep getting contract extensions yet no one can figure out why.
Southern Cal should construct a big digital display board at the entrance to campus, similar to the national debt clock near Bryant Park in New York City. Only at USC, it should count backward every day on the amount of money owed to Clay Helton for the remainder of his contract.
Though the true number has never been made public because USC is a private school, the contract extension Helton signed after the 2017 season was known within the industry to be absurd — with a buyout somewhere initially in the $20 million range, even though Helton was not really winning at a USC level or being pursued by better offers.
All in all, it was one last failure of vision and leadership from an era when USC allowed people like Pat Haden and Lynn Swann, who had no interest in doing the actual work of an athletics director, to run the show. https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/columnist/dan-wolken/2021/09/12/southern-cal-clay-helton-college-football-misery-index-loss-stanford/8308876002/
