Clay Helton has doubled down on converting USC from Tailback U to Air Raid West. Clay McGuire has been hired as the new line coach and running game coordinator. He joins OC Graham Harrell, a fellow Air Raider coached, trained and tutored by Mike Leach, to run the USC offense. These guys played for Leach and coached under him.
So USC now has Leach Light. The Pirate Xs and Os without the Pirate personality to offend the sensitive USC alumni. Will it help? USC average something like 3.7 yards per carry and 97 rushing yards a game this year, so it canŐt hurt. Expect to see USC widen the line gaps to create natural running lanes between zone blockers. This also spreads the edge rushers farther from the QB and allows more deep passing opportunities. I always wondered what Leach could do with a squad of blue chip players. We may get a glimpse next year. Or maybe Helton can continue to screw the pooch. Who knows?
