Clay Helton, in somewhat of a surprise, will be back as USC's head coach in 2019. The Trojans announced their decision on Sunday.

It turns out we'll have two Heltons leading college football programs in 2019.

Tyson Helton, the younger brother of the USC head coach, has landed his own head coaching gig.

The Tennessee offensive coordinator has been hired at Western Kentucky.

Tyson Helton, 41, was an assistant coach at USC before taking the Tennessee offensive coordinator job. This is his first head coaching position.

Western Kentucky went 3-9 this season.
