  Southern California has hired Sean Snyder as its special teams coordinator and Donte Williams as its cornerbacks coach and defensive pass game coordinator. Clay Helton announced the additions to his coaching staff Wednesday night. The 50-year-old Snyder has spent the past 26 years working in several jobs at Kansas State, where his father, Bill, was the longtime head coach. Bill Snyder's first coaching job was at USC as a graduate assistant in 1966.

Sean Snyder coached the Wildcats' special teams from 2011-18 while also serving as his father's associate head coach. He spent last season as Kansas State's senior special teams analyst after Chris Klieman succeeded Bill Snyder. Snyder replaces John Baxter, who was fired along with defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast last December after the Trojans finished their 8-5 season by losing the Holiday Bowl to Iowa. Williams spent the last two seasons as the cornerbacks coach at Oregon, where he earned a reputation as one of the West Coast's top recruiters, particularly in his native Los Angeles area. His Ducks also finished second in the nation with 20 interceptions. - AP College Football

  Todd Orlando has been named Southern California's defensive coordinator. Clay Helton announced the hiring Friday of the veteran assistant who spent the last three seasons as Texas' defensive coordinator. Orlando was fired by the Longhorns on Dec. 1 after three seasons with coach Tom Herman, who brought Orlando with him to Austin from the University of Houston. Orlando was among the highest-paid assistant coaches in the nation during his tenure at Texas. Helton fired defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast on Dec. 28 after four seasons together. One day earlier, the Trojans allowed 49 points while losing the Holiday Bowl to Iowa and finishing 8-5. - AP College Football

  Southern California left tackle Austin Jackson will skip his senior season to enter the NFL draft. Jackson announced his decision Wednesday. Jackson was the anchor of USC's much-improved offensive line last season. The 6-foot-6 junior was named to the All-Pac-12 first team. Jackson's achievements were even more impressive because he donated bone marrow to his younger sister, Autumn, less than a month before the start of training camp. Jackson's draft stock has risen steadily in recent months. He is widely expected to be picked in the first round in April. Jackson praised embattled USC coach Clay Helton in his departure statement.

"Coach Helton, thank you for your leadership and your constant support of me and my family both on and off the field," Jackson wrote. "USC has truly been such a special place to call home for the last three years." Helton and the Trojans face a challenge to reconfigure their offensive line after the departures of Jackson and starting right tackle Drew Richmond, who is out of eligibility. USC could move Jalen McKenzie or Liam Jimmons to the tackle spots next season. The team also added six offensive linemen in its poorly regarded recruiting class last month. - AP College Football
