Disclaimer – These are a series of substantiated facts strung together using some plain old common sense. But the old saying applies, "where there’s smoke there’s fire." [Especially when you’re dealing with a douche bag like Lane Kiffin]
Background – Almost every Division 1 head coach is given a car to drive. Kiffin was given a Lexus while at UT. There was an article in the local paper, while he was in Knoxville, saying that Kiffin was involved in a traffic accident late one night. No big deal was made of it and no one around TN thought much of it.
After he left for USC….the real story started leaking out…tidbit at a time. So, I’ve taken those tidbits and strung them together to present to the Duck fans. [It’s my understanding that Ducks hate Kiffin just about as bad as Vols.]
The rumor is that…
Yes, he did have a car accident. No one was hurt. When the Knoxville Police arrived on the scene, they noticed a strong smell of alcohol on his breath. So trying to protect the head coach of the local university…like most towns would do…they put him in the back of the patrol car and took him home. They also didn’t file an official police accident report….due to…well…you know…him being drunk and all…lol.
Later it was announced that Kiffin was being sued by a passenger harmed in the accident. Come to find out, there was a hot, drunk blonde in the car with Kiffin. [No it wasn’t his wife.] That’s another reason the cops did him a favor. Unfortunately, when Kiffin left for USC…his hot little blonde got pissed off at him….and filed a lawsuit saying that she was injured in the accident.
Kiffin took it like the douche bag he was and told the Lexus dealership to file it on their dealership insurance since they technically carried the coverage while he drove the car. Unfortunately….there was no police report filed. Remember the whole police doing him a favor thing? So the dealership’s insurance company told him to take a hike and defend himself. [It probably didn’t help Kiffin that the local insurance agencies hate him as much as everyone else in TN.]
There really wasn’t very much published in the news afterwards. Most lawsuits are settled out of court. They normally have a clause requiring both sides to keep secret any terms of their agreement.
Want to be the hot little blonde is driving her own Lexus now…paid for by Kiffin? LOL
That’s my present to Duck fans. Hope you guys enjoy the UT game….and let’s keep hating on Kiffin.
