The USC Trojans football team is coached by Clay Helton at this time. However, at the end of the season, the job could be opened.
Penn State Nittany Lions head coach James Franklin’s name is being brought up. And he did not strike down the rumors, either, on Tuesday.
“It’s that time of year where all this stuff happens,” Franklin said. “As you guys know, like always we’re focused on Maryland completely, 100 percent. I don’t even think it’s fair or right to be talking about that with everything I understand about it. We’re completely focused on Maryland.”
Franklin did not say that he would be coaching the team in 2019.
The Trojans are 5-6 this season. They are 4-5 in the Pac-12 Conference South Division.
USC has lost its past two games. They will attempt to end their winless streak against the undefeated No. 3 Notre Dame Fighting Irish at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum at 8 pm EST.
Helton is 32-16 in 48 games as the Trojans head coach. This season with five wins ties his worst full season mark, as the team had five wins in 2015.
The Trojans went 21-6 during the 2016 and 2017 seasons.
Franklin is 68-35 in 103 games as a college football head coach with stints with the Vanderbilt Commodores and the Nittany Lions. He is 44-20 in 64 games in Happy Valley.
The former 2016 Big Ten Coach of the Year is also 4-3 in Bowl games. He also coached two Consensus All-Americans in Carl Nassib in 2015 and Saquon Barkley in 2017.
