Helton's contract until 2023 means that a buyout would be costly. Bohn has assembled a great staff under him, who have worked wonders on the recruiting trail this past off-season. All Helton has to do is not mess up and not meddle too much to keep his job. We all know Helton is a subpar coach, but if USC wins 10+ games this year, he will certainly be coach in 2021. But then he'll have to face 2021 without Harrell, who will get a gig in the NFL, or at some other school.
