USC Fires Lane Kiffin
USC announced early this morning that Lane Kiffin has been fired following the Trojans’ 62-41 loss at Arizona State last night.
The embarrassing blowout loss was the final straw for AD Pat Haden.
Lane Kiffin has been relieved of his duties as USC’s head football coach, Trojan athletic director Pat Haden announced early today (Sept. 29).
Haden informed Kiffin of his termination upon the team charter’s arrival back in Los Angeles early Sunday morning following USC’s 62-41 loss at Arizona State.
Kiffin’s Trojans have lost 7 of their past 11 games. USC is 3-2 this year and has lost both of its Pac-12 games. His overall record in 4 years at USC is 28-15.
Haden will hold a press conference at USC on Sunday afternoon at a time and place to be announced.
Last year the Trojans entered the season as the No. 1 team in the country and finished outside the Top 25.
