Does anybody know if he was the primary play caller when he was at Western Kentucky?
Why did he decide to have a "smaller role" when hired by his brother at USC?
Helton at Western Kentucky was working as OC for Brohm so I'd guess that Brohm had lots of input on play calls but you can bet that Helton learned a huge amount working for that coach.
Then Helton went to USC for lots more $$$ working for his brother.
Just more guesses but it seems that Tee Martin will stay at USC until something big comes his way because Tees wife thinks she's going to hit it big as a singer/actor.
Tee is also kept at USC because he's seen as a good recruiter.
In the bowl game without Tye Helton to help Tee we saw the USC O do basically nothing and look really bad.
Keep in mind that Coach Friend is also a experienced OC so don't be surprised if both Helton and Friend work together in some ways for our Tennessee O.
Pruitt will be back on the hill soon so we'll see how things shake out as the staff is finalised and which coach is assigned to do what specifically.
As good of guesses as I can make at this point my friend.
