USC's Clay Helton said new offensive coordinator Tee Martin would call all of the plays this season. Helton called the plays last season as interim coach and would then lean on Martin on third down. "The best staffs I have been on have been the staffs that communicate after the series are done to make the adjustments," Helton said. The Trojans will remain no-huddle until the end of games in critical moments.
