    Does anyone know the details of Helton's contract? Years, Buyout tiers, etc? I like the momentum we are generating and assistant coaches. Curious if we shit the bed if we can ditch the HC, and keep some of the assistants come year end. I just don't know any details of Helton's contract whatsoever.

    Clay’s contract runs thru 2023. Not sure on the yearly salary but I’m guessing it’s probably somewhere between 3-4 million a year.

    So as of now he has 4 years remaining on his contract. Buyout would probably be in 12-16 million range as of now and probably less as buyouts typically don’t cover the full contracted salary.

    It’s best you don’t think about what you can’t control.

    Go online and they have Heltons estimated contract. Google it.
    It was 3.2 m yr. the buyout was not known so left blank.
    Only insiders know it and as private univ don’t have to disclose it
    The buyout must have been very high

    Supposedly there is no buyout, so they have to pay him his remaining years. Kind of like ND and Charlie. If this is true then it is really idiotic since Helton had no leverage. Or as some have suggested a poison pill by Max to prevent his firing.

    Yes, this would be another example of the idiot Swann and whoever signed off on the Helton contract making an incredibly stupid business decision on a coach that nobody else wanted.

    Bohn is cleaning house and getting rid of those who helped allow those terrible decisions the past few years.
    Have to give him time to right the ship.
    It is not his fault USC is at position at now.
