    Well if will help his resume then I’m all in. Silly me, I was thinking of SC’s best interests instead of his personally.

    Based on where our current talent is, position wise, I'd say that GH's and our interests are in sync for the coming season.

    I was talking about what HARRELL would take into consideration in his OWN decision, obviously! Your snide remark was ridiculous.

    I know our admin is run by idiots, but even with Harrell knowing that, I doubt becoming head coach at SC after 1.5 - 2 years as an OC is in his calculus.

    They might be that dumb, but if he is making a decision based on the hope of that outcome, than he is dumber than they.

    Pretty much. But that underscores the potential of Harrell also. I said in another post a few days ago, USC needs to give him a raise and help him see a continuing career path at USC to keep him here.

    You're telling me that if Helton's fired next year (which is a certainty if he has a bad start), Harrell wouldn't be in line for interim HC and that he's not even considering that very real possibility? I think he is.

    He gone. If he learns anything from these current leaders, it would be securing a win win win contract. Texas will outbid.

    After the decision to keep Clay, I find it very unlikely he gets let go mid-season next year. And, if he is fired, depending on who is on the staff, I don’t know if SC turns to the 24 year old. But let’s say Graham is betting on that, does he also think he’d then be hired as the full time HC after the interim gig? Because if he is not and they don’t hire an air raid HC he is gone. And will he be in as high of demand as right now... who knows, but that would be a big big bet.

    The bigger issue is that we have people clamoring for a 24 year old who runs a gimmick offense to be our savior. That is how bad things are at SC right now.

    We could go round and round with this, just my 2 cents.

    Knowing how cheap and out of touch SC is, he probably would get the gig.

    Courtesy of a friend who is a UT alumn:

    From the Texas insider site:


    I believe Harrell punctuated his meeting with Tom Herman on Wednesday by giving the Texas head coach the feeling he was UT bound. The source who intimated this is confident the meeting was a runaway success. I will say that Harrell was clear with Herman he still needed to talk to his family and USC.

    On Friday afternoon, the LA Times reported USC offered Harrell a new contract. The figures aren't known, but rest assured it was a big offer as the USC brass are under tremendous pressure to keep Harrell while a rabid fan base and donor group looks every bit like Texas circa 2013-2014.

    As I've written, I don't believe Harrell's decision will come down to money because he's getting paid regardless. If USC wins out, they just made a better case, and probably did an excellent job playing up the loyalty angle to good guy Clay Helton and favored son Kedon Slovis.

    You have to believe the Sc brass knows losing Harrell will doom them and they should pay up. Then again they are a bunch of know-it-all’s who tend to do the stupidest stuff so who knows.

    USC offense scored 25 more touch downs this year and showed significant improvements in almost every offensive category with a true freshmen quarterback. Anyone can do that? LOL

    SC Brass doesn't understand or care about the concept of doom. They simply don't care as long as we win the right way. The BoT absolutely controls this and just look at the assholes who sit on the Board.

    If the money is the same I would predict he sticks with Slovis. Watching other QBs this weekend he is in another class

    Graham Harrell is 34 years old, older than 14 head coaches in NFL history. He is older than Sean McVay.

    Maybe the deciding factor will be whether clay let's Slovis continue as the starter or if he's gonna gift the job back to JT next season, in which case, he's as good as gone.

    Slovis will be the starter with Harrell around. Take it to the bank

    Cute...but, GH is 34...he's as old or OLDER than coaches who have been given the "keys to the car" for NFL teams. If GH isn't CONSIDERED and "up-and-coming" HC candidate...not sure what DESIGNATES "up-and-coming"...?

    Fight on, FOREVER, Fight On!
