The head football coach at USC returns to address an expected large Pasadena Quarterbacks crowd, after a head coaching absence of some eight years. Pete Carroll was the last Trojan head coach to speak, in 2007, and had so for four years in a row.

The 44-year-old Helton has been at USC since 2010. Last year his team was co-champion of the Pac-12 South division, and earned a berth in the Pac-12 Championship Game. He was named the 2015 Los Angeles Sports Council Coach of the Year.

He joined the USC staff as the quarterbacks coach. He added the passing game coordinator title in 2012 and became the offensive coordinator in 2013.

Helton began his coaching career at Duke in 1995, then moved on to Houston, his alma mater for three seasons. He next spent 10 years at Memphis.

He prepped at Clements High in Sugar Land, Texas. Helton played his college ball first at Auburn for two years and then at the University of Houston. While at Houston, he played quarterback and was captain in 1994 as a senior.

Helton earned his bachelor’s degree in mathematics and interdisciplinary science from Houston in 1994. He and his wife Angela have three children.

Joining Helton on the podium, preceding his talk, is Steve Bogan, Maranatha High head football coach. Bogan is expected to bring a co-captain or two.

Quarterbacks’ Brick at Rose Bowl

Did you know that your Pasadena Quarterbacks purchased ‘a brick’ as our contribution to the Rose Bowl upgrade? Here’s what it looks like:


You can check it out in person: The brick is located at Gate “A” (the main south entrance to the stadium), at the northwest corner of the brick garden. Look for the City of Pasadena section. Our brick is in the bottom row, and under the word City.

A fitting tribute to the City, Rose Bowl, and our presence in both.
