    Haden: ‘no reason Lane Kiffin shouldn’t be our coach’

    http://collegefootballtalk.nbcsports...-be-our-coach/

    If USC had just lived up to expectations in 2012, issues such as deflated footballs and uniform number swaps and the coaches’ poll imbroglio and media brouhahas would’ve been minor hassles on the way to bigger and better things.

    The Trojans didn’t, and those issues were magnified in a six-loss season that culminated with an embarrassing performance in – and after — the Sun Bowl. It was the worst finish ever for a preseason No. 1, with seemingly everyone calling for the boot to be applied to head coach Lane Kiffin‘s backside.

    Everyone, that is, except for athletic director Pat Haden, who very publicly proclaimed back in late November he is “150-percent” behind the embattled coach. Two months later, Haden’s stance hasn’t shifted much if at all.
    I don't know about you guys, but I can think of a whole bunch of reasons.

    Maybe Haden was been brainwashed from doing all of those games in South Bend for NBC.
    Perhaps he is USC's Manchurian Candidate....???

    Between the lines: I stand behind Lane Kiffin 150 percent, until we get through the NCAA sanctions and we can attract a good coach, then, I'll help him pack his bags.

    As someone who doesn't care much for USC football and enjoys seeing Kiffin get his rear end kicked on the feild, I hope Haden continues to feel that way for a very long time.

    He's a program killer. Just ask the Vols. The guy recruits great and then seemly trains them to be thugs.

    It's hard for me to believe Hayden doesn't see past this jerk.

    Oh, he does. But with the heart of U$Cs sanctions about to kick in, he doesn't have a whole lot of options right now.
    I may disagree with you, but I'm pretty sure you're not Hitler.

    Re: Haden: ‘no reason Lane Kiffin shouldn’t be our coach’

    Lane Kiffin being a head coach of a major football program makes me really question what is real in this world sometimes. I mean I understand if one team/school takes a chance on him simple based on his dad, etc. But for him to continually get high paying, top of the line jobs is a big head scratcher for me! What am I missing here?

    That's posturing on Haden's part. He needs Kiffin to ride the NCAA storm out, then bring in the coach he wants.

    It's gotta be because of the sanctions or Pat Haden is not as smart as he's believed to be.

    I completely agree with this sentiment. It is still mind boggling to me this guy was an NFL head coach. Regardless that it was with the hapless Raiders, he was an NFL head coach.

    Kiffy and U$C go together like beer and nachos. I hope the union lasts 20-years

    The only reason Haden needs is the look on Kiffen's face in the article . Totally clueless !

    Re: Haden: ‘no reason Lane Kiffin shouldn’t be our coach’

    A writer wrote very recently, "Kiffin should probably be fired but with his luck he'd sign a multi-million dollar deal to coach an NFL team within two weeks".

    Amazingly, he's probably pretty close to being right. Kiffin is the most charmed guy I think I've ever seen.
    He is constantly rewarded by bigger abd better jobs for being a totally inferior coach.

    Go figure.
