    West coast guy.

    Has some Pac-12 connections.

    Some serious NFL experience.

    Head coaching experience.

    SL produces some top shelf OL's and RB's.

    Probably a better hire than KK tbh.

    GO GET HIM!!

    Yep, first thought that came to my mind. Give him whatever he wants and bring back a running game!

    haha.... Cowboys fan here, u might not want to pull that trigger. DC were one of the lowest scoring teams in the NFL this year. For crying out loud, Zeke had 6 (SIX!!!) TD's ALL YEAR!!!
    Unless you are still thrilled by head scratching decisions, games that are closer than they should be vs lesser talent & lining up in shotgun to throw on 1st & goal @ the 1, STAY AWAY!!!

    But, maybe he could have different success at the college level? Ala some NFL head coaches who have done the same? Just a thought...

    Sure. Lets get all the fired coaches. Helton is already one as far we're all concerned.

    I can hear it now, "lets get FIRED up".

    Holy crap. Clay Helton does know how to run a pro offense because you just described our offense perfectly. Gumbo 2019!

    Linehan had nowhere near the star power of KK. He might be a good alternative but don't get it twisted

    Linehan would definitely qualify as a OC and should be interviewed.
    My first choice would be Graham Harrell as he is a Air Raid expert. With the personnel USC has
    a good passing OC would be a boon. KK will be sorry in a few years that he gave up this opportunity.
    Fisch would also be a good choice.
    Hopefully, Helton and Swann have some offers on the table. Can't go back to no OC and Helton making the
    calls. It is 5-7 or worse with the tough schedule.
    Need to find an OC who will score a lot of points.

    Yes, let's hire Air Raid Jr. The hottest girl changed her mind and turned you down for the prom and went with her ex after making him jealous - you got played. Now you're left taking your sister. No thanks. It's time to bury finesse football. Heavy, physical spread, with a top defense is the winning formula. It's been the winning formula for over a decade with National Championship teams. Go with what works.

    I was just thinking, since being fired seems to be the in thing around here, let's hire Tee back.
