After yielding an atrocious 730 yards of offense in last week’s 62-51 loss to Oregon, embattled University of Southern California (USC) head coach Lane Kiffin is under intense scrutiny to axe the team’s defensive coordinator, his 72-year-old father, Monte.
The 37-year-old Kiffin, a polarizing clowns pocket who has destroyed relationships with past employers at the University of Tennessee and Oakland Raiders, may also be fired for underachieving, questionable play-calling and possibly violating NCAA ethics codes.
At a lethargic 6-3, Kiffin, who has compiled substandard records of 31-16 in college and 5-15 in the NFL, has remaining games against Arizona State, UCLA and Notre Dame to attempt to salvage an otherwise disheartening season in Troy.
Unfortunately for USC and Kiffin, the man that late Raiders owner Al Davis called “a flat-out liar” seems mentally unequipped to succeed on the sidelines.
Kiffin, who brazenly accused former University of Florida coach Urban Meyer of cheating and so infuriated Volunteers fans that rioting ensued upon his departure from Knoxville in 2010, promises to fairly evaluate his patriarch’s performance and proceed accordingly.
Considering that Lane is reportedly nearing dismissal, the weasel shouldn’t even entertain the idea of assessing Monte’s work until his own job security has been made clear.
Lane Kiffin is an unlikable guy without many supporters and it would be wise of him to firmly stand behind Monte at this particular time.by
