If you believed USC’s announcement that Monte Kiffin resigned to pursue NFL opportunities, then it would mean he is abandoning his players (and son) after a season when school records in points (62) and yards (730) were allowed.
But who believed the announcement? Kiffin suggested in an interview with 710-AM on Friday he quit before being fired.
“I wasn’t going to do that (to my son and tell him), `OK, kid, you want to fire me? Then step up and be a man and fire me,’ ” Monte Kiffin said.
