Former Trojans Chris Claiborne, Hayes Pullard join USC staff as quality control analysts

Chris Claiborne and Hayes Pullard are back in cardinal and gold.

The two former USC linebackers have joined the Trojans’ staff as quality control analysts, head coach Clay Helton announced on Thursday. Claiborne will help on the offensive side of the ball while Pullard will work on defense.

Claiborne spent the last two years as head coach at Calabasas High before resigning that position in December after going 17-6 in two seasons, winning a league title in 2019. He also served as an assistant coach at Long Beach Poly, Oaks Christian and Corona while in the high school ranks.

He returns to USC, where he was a three-year starter from 1996-1998. In his final season at USC, Claiborne was a team captain and won the Butkus Award and Pac-10 Defensive Player of the Year Award while being named a unanimous All-American. He went ninth overall in the 1999 NFL Draft to the Lions and played professionally until 2006.

Pullard started at USC from 2011-2014, finishing his career sixth on the program’s all-time tackles list. The former Crenshaw High standout played three years in the NFL.

Both were effectively hired prior to the COVID-19 outbreak, but agreed to start their duties on June 1, USC’s statement said.
