The 2012 football season may have ended weeks ago, but we continue to see the fallout from a disappointing 7-6 season. Kennedy Polamalu became the most recent assistant coach to face the firing squad, as he was reportedly let go by Lane Kiffin on Friday.
Kiffin hired Polamalu away from the Tennessee Titans in 2010. The hiring sparked a lawsuit by former Titans coach Jeff Fisher, who claimed USC and its head coach wrongfully lured an assistant without first contacting his current employer. Polamalu was immediately named the new running backs coach for the Trojans, and though he was also labeled as offensive coordinator, it was Kiffin that fulfilled the playcalling duties.
