Following consecutive defeats to Pac-12 perennial also-rans Washington State and Arizona State, the University of Southern California has fired football head coach Lane Kiffin.

Read the Los Angeles Times article here.

USC fans have been hoping for this day to come for quite some time:








Granted, the non-SEC program has been hampered with harsh penalties imposed by the NCAA following the Reggie Bush scandal. But Kiffin proved to be out of his depth as a head coach and player manager.

As a UCLA alumnus, I'm torn about this. While I relish the mire USC is currently in, I fear that the next head coach will only improve the program.

I have no idea why they hired him in the first place. I hope Notre Dame or Miami give him a try next. whistle

I do find it humorous as an ASU masters student that when we beat SC they fire the head coach. What will happen if the Sun Devils beat the Irish next week in Dallas? Will they join the B1G? Fire the coach?

It's less to do with USC than with the system as a whole, but much of big-time college football seems to be about chasing guys who are willing to renege on their commitments, both contractual and other. Is it any wonder that programs are left scratching their head and thinking "Hey, this ain't quite what we thought we were getting."?

I wonder what impact this will have on the QB from Delaware who committed to Kifflin and USC when he was in 7th grade?

Kiffin should have been fired last year. A team loaded with talent ranked #1 at the beginning of the season and they lost 5 of their last 6 being blown out in several of those games.

*edit*

Seems there is already a push by some fans to hire Lovie Smith. I'd love to see that. He wants to be a head coach again. In fact he turned down more than one defensive coordinator spot from what I have heard this year because he wants to only head coach, but I don't know if he's interested in coaching at the college level.
