USC Trojans team plane tips backward on tarmac with coaches, football staff still on board

The post-Clay Helton era at USC has gotten off to a bizarre start ahead of Saturday's game at Washington State.

After landing in Lewiston, Idaho, on Friday, the Trojans' team plane tipped backward on the tarmac, sending the plane's nose into the air after the grounds crew did not put the plane's tail stand in place.

It happened during the deplaning process with coaches and staff members still on the plane, according to a USC spokesperson.
