Not only that, but Helton has no network

By: NYTrojan



He doesn't have a lot of contacts from decades of coaching experience to draw upon.  In theory he assembled the very best set of coordinators he could when he took the job.

If he were a better coach he might be able to attract people to the job he's never met or worked with before, the way Carroll got Norm Chow when he first came on board, but that just isn't his (or USC's) style.  We don't often take flyers on unconnected people, the way Mike Belotti did when he brought Chip Kelly in to be his OC.  We dig into our networks and bring back people we know and are familiar with... and Helton has burned through all of those already.
