USC will make interim head coach Clay Helton’s position permanent, the university announced. Helton, who has also been serving as the Trojans’ offensive coordinator, has gone 5-2 since taking over for Steve Sarkisian earlier this year. USC faces Stanford in the Pac-12 championship game on Saturday.
Helton is not the type of splashy name many would expect to land the gig. Especially since Chip Kelly speculation has been prevalent.
