USC football players clearly approve the hire of Clay Helton as the full-time head coach of the program.

News broke Monday morning that the university removed the “interim” label from Helton’s title and will have him back at least one more year as the official head coach for 2016.

When the players heard the news, they went ballistic.

Apparently, in their eyes the school made absolutely the right choice with Helton, regardless of his lack of big-name prestige. They clearly love the guy.

Just watch this reaction.

Time will tell if this was the right hire, but it sure seems like it was right now.
