Helton, 40, came to the Trojans before the 2016. He has shared play-calling duties with Martin. In 2016 he was named the QB Coach of the Year by Football Scoop for his work with USC QB Sam Darnold.

Before coming to coach with his brother, he spent the previous 2 years (2014-15) as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Western Kentucky.  WKU broke more than two dozen school offensive records under Helton, including the points scored record in each of his 2 years.
