USC head coach Clay Helton offered up a strong endorsement earlier this week when he named Kenechi Udeze as the Trojans’ defensive line coach.
“There are times in your career when you meet someone and just know that they are going to be a superstar in the profession,” Helton said in a statement released by the school. “Kenechi is that person. I was blown away by his attention to detail with technique and fundamentals in our recent bowl game preparation and in the interview process. Kenechi is a Trojan to the core, and his passion for USC is felt by all.”
A superstar in the profession.
That’s a tall order. But then again, when you look at the path that has brought Udeze to this point it’s hard to bet against the statement.
