Outside of Helton it's mostly been simple bad hires - they've gotten who they wanted. Kiffin and Sarkisian

[In reply to "Regarding USC, if it were a top job, why are they having issues finding a top coach?" by OscarSierraUniform, posted at 12:51:13 09/14/21]
were hot commodities at the time that USC hired them. I don't think they've struck out on top candidates much.
: The facilities suck.
: No $$ being pumped in like Alabama, OSU, Clemson, UGa, et al.
: The most telling is they cannot hire a top coach *OR* a top upcoming young coach.
: They had good years while Carroll was there.
: They had sporadic success off and on through the years.
: But they hadn't found much success until Petey was hired and have been mediocre since.
: They are severely overrated.
