Another former staffer has reached out to me with a tale that goes against the image of Clay Helton as just being Mr. Nice Guy.
“They used to have a guy who worked on the staff, and when Clay Helton would pull up in his car, the guy would have to give Helton a cup of coffee,” the former staffer said. “He might have to park his car too.”
Now that’s a job “perk” I don’t recall Pete Carroll or his successors ever getting.
Maybe Helton was in a hurry to get on the golf simulator under Heritage Hall.
