John Baxter, known for producing extremely productive special teams units, has returned to USC as its special teams coordinator after spending a season at Michigan, USC football head coach Clay Helton announced today (Jan. 7).
Baxter, who most recently was at USC in 2013, has 34 years of coaching experience.
“We are very excited to welcome back John Baxter to our Trojan Family,” said Helton. “He is one of the most respected coaches in our profession at any position. His units have been near the top of the collegiate special team efficiency rankings almost every year. Having worked alongside him in the past, I know Coach Baxter as one of the best teachers and skill developers in football today. We look forward to our special teams rising to greater heights under him.”
