"We wanted someone who could take our offense to new heights and whose system fit our current personnel," Helton said. "An individual who knows both the pass and run games and is an aggressive play-caller on game day. Also someone who is a great teacher and who can develop quarterbacks to their full potential. We have found all these characteristics in Graham."
"USC has always attracted the best coaches in the country from all levels," Helton said. "We will spend the upcoming weeks finding the best possible fit for USC and our program."
