(Photo by Harry How/Getty Images)USC lost to rival UCLA on Saturday, and as a result, the Trojans will now need to beat Notre Dame next week to become bowl eligible. Either way, this hasn’t been a typical USC season, and some fans are calling for change.The Trojans struggled defensively all day against a Bruins team that entered the contest with just two wins. Many are wondering if this could have been head coach Clay Helton’s last game – or second-to-last game.Helton’s first two seasons as head coach produced 10 wins and 11 wins, respectively. But his third campaign has not gone well.Here’s a sample of what’s out there – the loss to UCLA seems to have been the tipping point.#USC will lose to a 2-8 #UCLA squad and now have to beat undefeated Notre Dame just to make a bowl game.There is no way Clay Helton should be back next season.— Ryan Abraham (@insidetroy) November 18, 2018Clay Helton is encroaching on can’t afford NOT to fire him territory. Even if it would cost a fortune.— Pat Forde (@YahooForde) November 17, 2018Well, well, well @USC_Athletics football HC Dear Old Dad Clay Helton loses to Chip Kelly and the #UCLA Bruins. I realize Clay Helton is probably a good guy, but he doesn’t have the killer instinct nor passion to be the HC of #USCTrojans. Congrats to the @UCLAFootball team.— Captain Morgan (@Captain_M0rgan3) November 18, 2018Clay Helton has gotta go. You can’t lose to that awful UCLA team. That’s pathetic— Clayton (@cbake75) November 18, 2018Dear Clay Helton,You’re a good man & we appreciate your time & effort. However, it wasn’t good enough. We believe it’s time to go our separate ways. We’re gonna consider letting you coach our final game against ND, but after that, please clean out your office!Sincerely,#USC ✌?— Super DJ Chris Armenta (@SuperDJCA) November 18, 2018USC now needs to beat Notre Dame, which is 11-0, just to notch its sixth win and play in a bowl game. Clearly, that’s not the standard for the program.Notre Dame, meanwhile, needs a victory to qualify for the College Football Playoff – so there will be plenty of motivation on both sides.It’s going to be an interesting Sunday for Helton. We’ll keep you updated.last_img
