Woke up to some big news out of Los Angeles, where Lane Kiffin has been fired following another terrible loss:
Pat Haden, J.K. McKay, Steve Lopes, Mark Jackson (#USC administrators) met with Lane Kiffin at LAX parking lot to dismiss him— InsideUSC (@InsideUSC) September 29, 2013
I heard Lane Kiffin left his bag on team bus because he thought his meeting with Pat Haden would be brief and routine matter #USC— InsideUSC (@InsideUSC) September 29, 2013
I'm told Lane Kiffin told the bus to wait but then #USC administrators told it to go back to campus without him— InsideUSC (@InsideUSC) September 29, 2013
Queue up the rumor mill connecting anyone and everyone to this job, but one thing is for sure: get a competent coach at SC, and they are immediately a factor in the Pac-12. No rumors yet on which new job Kiffin is falling up to.
