Report: Washington State Hiring USC Offensive Line Coach Clay McGuire

McGuire spent one season with USC, coaching the offensive line.

Washington State is expected to hire USC offensive line coach Clay McGuire, according to several reports.  

ESPN's Adam Rittenberg first reported McGuire's move.

McGuire's stint in Southern California was short and sweet. He was hired back in January to replace former offensive line coach Tim Drevno who was fired after the 2020 season. 

“His extensive knowledge of our offensive system and time spent under great offensive minds like Mike Leach and Kliff Kingsbury made him a top target for us," former USC head coach Clay Helton said of McGuire's hiring.

"His ability to develop players and build relationships in recruiting will help our program grow. We look forward to the passion and competitiveness he will bring to our football team.”
