Was Harrell extension a mistake?

USC didn’t even pretend to commit to the running game. If this is Harrells offense, can we even win with it? I seriously doubt it. We might be able to expose weak pac12 teams but not top tier programs. How could we even get RBs or TEs to commit to the program knowing they won’t play a role in the offense? Was Harrells extension simply doubling down on retaining Helton? I know you can’t switch OCs every year, which we were at risk of doing. What’s everyone’s thoughts? Can Harrell adapt his offense? Or does it even matter if we keep Helton?
