USC Hires Clay Helton As Permanent New Head Coach
Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports
USC has officially hired interim coach Clay Helton as their permanent head coach, giving him a multiyear deal on Monday after he guided the Trojans to a 5-2 mark since taking over for Steve Sarkisian...

"After weeks of searching the collegiate and pro ranks, interviewing candidates, and speaking with head coaches, athletic directors, NFL executives, and very knowledgeable football people, and after observing Clay in action the past seven weeks, it became abundantly clear that what we were searching for in a coach was right here in front of us," athletic director Pat Haden said in a statement.

"Choosing a coach is an inexact science. In Clay's case, there is exactness. We have a man with unquestioned integrity. He is a fantastic person and he is real. Clay is a leader of young men. He is a terrific communicator. He brings high character, stability, continuity, consistency, toughness and resiliency to our program."

Man Pat Haden is awful at choosing coaches. You're USC and you fall in love with a dude who's never bee adult time head coach before? UGA must be dancing in their loafers over the lack of competition they'll have for the top coaches this year
