It seems that the USC Trojans are sticking with Clay Helton for the 2020 season. That's fine since the Trojans have had winning seasons under Helton, particularly to the tune of a 40-21 record. However, three-loss seasons aren't enough for a prestigious football program like USC, where they've fallen by the wayside as of late. Get rid of Clay and who should you replace him with?
The obvious move would be to go after Urban Meyer. Winner of three national titles, a bowl record of 12-3, and an overall record of 187-32, Meyer would catapult the Trojans to the top of the Pac-12 with strong recruiting classes, scary edge rushers, and NFL-ready talent. Let's face it, the Pac-12 doesn't have a defining team in the conference the way Oklahoma defines the Big 12 or Clemson defines the ACC. Chris Peterson just stepped down at Washington and the conference's best teams have their best squads this season. Considering the conference's struggles in trying to get into the playoff, it would not only benefit the Trojans, but the Pac-12 as well.
Granted, Meyer is comfortable in his position as assistant athletic director at Ohio State. He also stepped down due to health problems and has a bit of a track record with his players getting in trouble. Then, there's the rumors of him going to the Dallas Cowboys. But, if the Trojans want to be relevant in football again, offer Urban Meyer a boatload of money to coach again and take over the Pac-12.
My life! Food, sports, school. It's what it is!
