It seems as though the Trojan players are very excited about Clay Helton being named as the university's permanent head coach. 

USC athletic director Pat Haden announced to the team on Monday morning that Helton was no longer the interim head coach, but rather he would get the job permanently. 

The current Trojans players went absolutely crazy, mobbing Helton and chanting “Helton. Helton. Helton.”

It's safe to say the Trojan players are big fans of this decision.
