    And that is on THIS contract. When Haden took the interim off his title and signed him to his first contract, it was for a much lower amount than he is making today. People wonder why Haden didn't go through an interview process? THAT'S the reason.

    For sure it's one reason. The other being, Haden didn't have a facking clue how to hire a proper coach.

    But the question is for how long? We win because we are still the most talented team in the conference. When that changes our middle salary guy isn't going to be winning so many games anymore.

    Then we are going to have a losing program and have to spend even more money to get back to a winning program.

    a) Haden had no clue how to hire a coach
    b) Haden had no final say in hiring a new coach
    c) therefore___________________

    your postulates are alwasy expressed as the axioms of a fool.

    If Helton was the lowest paid coach among all Power 5 schools, he would still be overpaid.

    Fire the bastard, I mean nice guy.

    seriously, I don’t have anything against Helton personally, but he isn’t ready for the HC position at USC. Not sure if he ever will.

    we need a higher caliber coach, regardless of pay (which is what it is, for whomever).

    Can anyone with a straight face say that Clay Heltons phone is ringing in the off-season???? The only person calling is TheUSCWAY asking if he wants extra pepperoni on his pizza.

    You presume the administration sees a winning program the same way the fans do. I can tell you, they don't. The fans want the team to be "in the discussion" every year and if they're not, it's not a winning program. The administration simply wants to cover their costs and keep the team off the front pages as far as negative crap is concerned. And for better or worse, their $31M kick from the Pac 12 Network allows them to do that. Nobody is losing money on the program's mediocrity. As a long-time part-time faculty member, I can tell you that the university knows exactly where every dollar goes and exactly what every dollar bring in and even with a bozo like Helton at the helm, the university is not even close to taking a financial hit on the program.

    And? The point is we are getting about what we pay for.

    Maybe . Maybe not. Helton seems to be learning on the job. He got rid of Callaway, BKU, etc

    Problem with Helton is most fans have given up hope. With a PC Saban Meyer you know the are going to right the ship
    It will only get worse under Helton

    So what will be the budget for Meyer, if they bring him in? 15 to 20 mil a year?

    The PAC 12 commercials say it is the "Conference of Champions" ....... maybe they were talking about someone else.
