Some quick items on Lane Kiffin’s press conference:
He does not expect to hire a secondary coach but would not say if he would use that spot to hire an offensive coordinator. Kiffin also declined to say if he would call plays.
Kiffin said USC was hurt in recruiting because of negative comments about his job status. He said it hurt out-of-state recruits more because they pick USC more for the coach than for the school.
Kiffin blamed media outlets like ESPN for decommitments because they make such a big deal out of announcements. He also said USC could sign 20 players next season.
