Cody Kessler, Su'a Cravens Lead USC Players Campaigning For Clay Helton To Be Full-Time Hire

Since USC fired Steve Sarkisian in early October, the Trojans have gone 5-2, winning the Pac-12 North with a chance to win the conference next Saturday. 

Much of USC's surge after Sarkisian's firing can be attributed to interim head coach Clay Helton. 

Helton, 43, was the Trojans' offensive coordinator before taking over as head coach. 

After USC's 40-21 win against UCLA today, multiple Trojans' players - including stars Cody Kessler and Su'a Cravens - said Helton should be hired as the full-time head coach.

Cravens, a junior, is thought of by many to be an early-entrant into the NFL Draft. He said today, though, that it's possible he comes back. Hiring Helton could sway him to stay, too.
