Lane Kiffin Says No To Hiring Offensive Coordinator

USC coach Lane Kiffin said after a rainy practice today he would not be adding any offensive assistants or hiring an offensive coordinator. This is news because Kiffin said during the regular season he would consider all options.

This means Kennedy Polamalu remains the official offensive coordinator and Kiffin calls plays next season.

      You meant to say “haha, Kiff killing his career” right?

        Spud, doubt you make $2M +. That’s as much as your boss paid for his McDonalds.

    That way when Kiffin visits recruits he can keep telling them: “Tell you what, you sign with us and I’ll get a play design for you. Pssst, I know the guy who calls all the plays!”

    Basically he is filling out his own walking papers what an idiot

      Sounds correct. At a minimum, it’s a risky gambit for Kiffin not to engage someone to collaborate with him. If I had his national image, I would hang on for dear life to make this work. Unless, consciously or subconsciously, he wants to return to being an OC, and needs to show his merit at it. Could that be it?

      IMHO, if Haden permits it, he’s holding the reins too loosely. Kiffin has not succeeded in 2012 as a CEO of the program, or as the OC.

    I am sure our opponents are very pleased to hear this news.

    Well, maybe this gets him fired after next season, 7-6 8-5 is very possible and if the team tunes him out like this year, it will be worse.

      LK isn’t going ANYWHERE until AFTER sanctions are finished.

    Noel Mazzone confirms that he’s staying as UCLA’s OC, Anthony Barr announces he’s returning for his senior season, and Kiffin announces he’s going to hold onto the Denny’s menu. What a great day!

        9-7 vs UCLA in the Rose Bowl, including this year’s win = Someone needs to stop using their embarrassing handle and find a new one–such as, USC Owns the Sun Bowl. Silly little Trojan.

    Alright KIffin. Better yet, how about calling no plays at all? Get fired. Resign. Quit. Whatever! Just stop being there, won’t you?

    • UCLA Owns the Rose Bowl

      I think he shoould resort to the close-your-eyes-and-throw-darts-at-the-Denny’s-menu method of play calling. Hey, it works for monkeys and the stock market!

    This is because Kiffin’s ego told him “NO” in no certain terms!
