    Head Coach: Clay Helton

    Offensive Coordinator: Kliff Kingsbury
    Hire made official by USC on December 5th

    QB coach: Kliff Kingsbury


    RB coach: TBD
    Was Tim Drevno, who is projected to be o-line coach

    WR coach: Keary Colbert
    Multiple recruits have been told that Colbert will be the new WR coach

    OL coach Tim Drevno
    Filled RB coach role early in year, then doubled with o-line role after Neil Callaway was let go with four games remaining

    TE coach: TBD

    Defensive Coordinator: Clancy Pendergast
    Rumors today from multiple angles that Clancy had been let go but they have been refuted and it appears as if he is staying

    DL coach: TBD
    Kenechi Udeze let go Tuesday morning.

    OLB coach Johnny Nansen

    DB coach: TBD
    Ronnie Bradford will not be back. Look for the spot to be filled by a coach with current Pac-12 experience. USC Thorpe Award winner Mark Carrier is in the mix.

    Special teams: John Baxter

    The retention of coaches is equally as significant as the coaches that have been fired.

    Yeah, that's my question. What are we hearing from the recruits Garry?

    Garry, very interesting. You didn't mention OC - that was the position Helton needs to fill that Tee had held, unless you are thinking Kingsbury would be both OC and QB coach. Also, is Clancy safe? He had his moments, some good, some bad. It would make much more sense to have Keary at WR's. Sorry that Kenechi was let go, great man who has overcome a bunch. However, if the hire is an SEC type of DL coach, I would be okay. Bradford was pretty average. Unfortunately not that passionate with the kids. This staff was a group of misfits trying to fit into positions for which they had limited expertise. That is going to be the issue, can Clay hire quality people who may only have one year to get the ship turned (remember the Titanic turned, just not enough).

    Clay Helton - "Hey, i'll be here the next 15 years" (with grin on his face), while his entire staff takes the fall. That's not usually how it works but I'll take it.

    As they should......only way to have any chance of slowing down this firestorm is to implement the plan immediately....

    Clancy is likely being retained but expect an overhaul around him. New DL coach and DBs at the very least. LB coach Johnny Nansen likely retained but could flip to back to RBs. He was a nominated for assistant coach of the year.

    Is the position of OC open?
    It would seem that the HC should be the HC not OC
    Kingsbury should be a OC candidate not QB coach
    He is an offense guru rising star

    I would like to see a DC, DL, Secondary Coach who knows how to create turnovers. During the PC era, they worked on that all the time. Turnover Tuesday...Offense would compete against the Defense on protecting against turnovers and causing them. There was always someone coming behind a tackler to try and punch a ball out.

    I think there's a lot more fire to the smoke of KK being on campus. They most likely would not have let Tee go if they didn't already have a replacement lined up. I think KK is going to be the guy.
