USC Tweaks Coaching Staff
Joe DeForest, who was a USC defensive analyst last season, is going to become a linebackers coach next season. Among the schools DeForest has coached at are Kansas, West Virginia, Oklahoma State and Duke.
He was the linebackers coach at Duke when Clay Helton was a graduate assistant there (of course).
Now Johnny Nansen was the linebackers coach last season so it's possible they may share the position. USC has room for an extra defensive coach because Kliff Kingsbury is taking two spots as quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator.
