    Default Athlon Sports: USC Football: 14 Coaching Candidates to Replace Clay Helton

    Billy Napier, Head Coach, Louisiana
    Napierís name has popped up in the rumor mill for SEC openings the last two offseasons. While Napier isnít in a hurry to leave Lafayette and can wait for the right opening, USC should inquire about his interest. The Tennessee native played his college ball at Furman and spent time as an assistant under Dabo Swinney at Clemson before landing at Colorado State (2012) and Alabama (2013-16). Napier was hired as Arizona Stateís play-caller in 2017 and departed after one season to become the head coach at Louisiana. The Raginí Cajuns are 29-12 with three Sun Belt West Division titles under his watch. The programís 11-win season in 2019 marked the highest one-year victory total in school history.

    Hope we're focused on Ohio for Thursday. Best chance for Coach Napier to get one of those high profile jobs is for the team to win out the rest of the season.

    USC would have to pay him $6M per year to make what he makes here.

    Might get him a start in covering the extra gasoline taxes. Geez those voters are idiots.
