USC Fires Lane Kiffin

Trojans athletic director Pat Haden informed Kiffin after the team’s flight arrival back in Los Angeles early Sunday morning after the loss at Tempe, Ariz., the school said in a statement on its website.
USC has lost seven of its past 11 games dating to last year and both of its first two in Pac-12 play this season. Kiffin was pulled off the team bus in a parking lot at LAX by Haden and several other school administrators and was told he was fired, the Daily News reported.
Under Kiffin, the Trojans are no longer the dominant team in the Pac 12 or Los Angeles for that matter. UCLA continues to improve and climb in the rankings while USC keeps losing, which made the decision even more important.
No coach has ever landed more top-tier jobs with no results to show for it. Kiffin has coached the USC Trojans, Tennessee Volunteers and Oakland Raiders.
USC is a top 5 coaching job in the country. It will be exciting to see who Pat Haden hires to lead the Trojans going forward. It could potentially create an interesting domino effect in college football.
Who do you all think will be the next USC coach?
