The point of this column is to provide behind-the-scenes moments of the USC football program. So how is the morale these days?
Let's take a look at the offensive line, which is clearly a weak spot. The truth is even other coaches flee being around the offensive line because they don't believe in the methods of offensive line coach Neil Callaway.
Additionally, for two years I have heard offensive tackle Chuma Edoga does not enjoy playing under Callaway. Maybe this is a reason his performances are wildly inconsistent.
Clay Helton hired former USC offensive line coach Tim Drevno to coach the running backs this season and the expectation is Drevno will take overthe offensive line next season.
But the truth is the offensive line did not exactly light the world on fire when Drevno coached it in 2014.
Still, it cannot worse with him than Callaway, who has lost the confidence of colleagues and some players. But don't blame him. Helton's known about this the past two seasons and done nothing about it. Just another sign of an unhealthy program.
