Pat Haden Backs Lane Kiffin

USC athletic director Pat Haden offered his full support for football coach Lane Kiffin in this pre-Pac-12 media day video.
Key quote: “I anticipate the media will ask me if our football coach is on the hot seat this year. . . . he is not. I’m behind Lane Kiffin 100 percent.”
Later, Haden said, “He’s a dynamic playcaller in my estimation. I firmly believe we’ll bounce back strong.”

    MADE WE WANT TO JUST THROW UP. Pat C Haden’s butt is on the hot seat IMO

    • Joe Blow

      Haden should have been fired long ago, for more than the head football coach.

    • L’Angelo Misterioso

      No he’s not, he is just what the higher ups want, all academics all the time.

    Maybe Pat as a former USC qb should tell Haden that he is trying to play a slug at qb with a 95 mph fastball when he has a Tom Brady type that does nothing but outplay the slug.

    • L’Angelo Misterioso

      Kessler will do fine this year, at whatever school he transfers to after Kiffin fawks him over this fall.

    ” Dynamic playcaller” ????? Really ?? The bubble screens on first down are “dynamic”?? The lack of a running game is ” Dynamic” ? Throwing every ball to Lee is ” dynamic ” ? Pat Haden, ruining USC athletics one sport at a time.


    es muy caliente por este Bounce Pass!!
    (Bounce Pass is feeling the heat!!)

    i’ve seen more effective videos from the Tallyban!!
    did Bounce Pass really expect to fool the wolfman with
    such trifles??

    i’ll admit, last year was SUBLIME!!!! but this year is looking like a total IMPLOSION!!!

    UH OH, i am starting to get the funny feeling!!!

    c’mon, FUNNY FEELING!!!

      Scott, or one of his friends, posing as Bucket, is one sick MF’er!!!

  • B.Miller

    That’s all great and everything, but if Kiffin doesn’t work out, Haden you better separate yourself from that burning ship! Or you will go down with it!

    From a UCLA alum and fan:
    Hurray for Pat Haden.
    Keep Kiffin in charge of football. Better to have another Hackett than a talented winning coach like Pete Carroll.
    Please keep Kiffin forever. 7-6 with Barkley, Woods, Lee and all that other talent? Wow, love the job he did.
    PS: And I also love my Georgia Tech Sun Bowl tshirt – what a fun game to watch!
