USC - Staff Tracker

After just two games, and after a 1-1 start to the 2020 season, USC pulled the plug on the Clay Helton era following a 42-28 loss to Stanford. Helton compiled a record of 46-24 leading the Trojans.

Due a $12 million buyout from USC, Helton quickly landed on his feet and was named head coach at Georgia Southern on November 2nd, 2020.

Despite the chatter picking up as the season reached its final weekend, Lincoln Riley proclaimed at his post game presser after losing to rival Oklahoma State that he would not be the next head coach at LSU. 

The very next day word broke that final details were being worked out for Riley to head west as the new head coach USC.
