Clay Helton was believed to be a near-lock to be fired following the 2019 college football season. The Trojans got off to a rough start to the year and Urban Meyer speculation was swirling. Surely, USC, boasting a new athletic director, would make a change in 2020.
That mindset appears to have changed.
Multiple reports have confirmed that there’s now major momentum for Helton to return to the Trojans in 2020.
Bruce Feldman reported that this morning.
“Clay Helton has impressed his new bosses and the feeling inside USC is that they’re leaning toward bringing him back,” he reported.
Colin Cowherd, who’s based in Los Angeles and has connections to the USC program, backed up what Feldman reported.
“What I’m hearing too,” he said.
USC has finished the regular season strong. The Trojans are 8-4, winning five of their last six games.
The “slam dunk” hire to replace Helton might not be out there, either. Meyer is now being linked to the Dallas Cowboys job. James Franklin would probably be tough to pull away from Penn State.
So, it does make some sense to give Helton another season and see where the Trojans – and the college football coaching landscape – are at at this time next season.
