The USC Trojans have fired head football coach Lane Kiffin. After yet another embarrassing blowout loss on Saturday night at the hands of the Arizona State Sun Devils, USC finally decided that it had enough of Kiffin. Anyone who follows college football is not asking why the Trojans fired Kiffin. They are asking what took so long.
After a few disappointing seasons in Southern California, are the football powers-that-be finally ready to admit to the world what the fans have known for quite some time now? That is, Lane Kiffin is a horrible head coach. He was horrible in the NFL with the Oakland Raiders. He was horrible with the Tennessee Volunteers. He was horrible with USC. Can we finally move on from any school or program or team hiring Kiffin, dealing with the mess that comes with him, both on and off the field, and then putting their fan base and alumni through that ordeal again in the future.
