It feels like the Dan Patrick show should be broadcast from USC with the seemingly constant focus on the Trojans. This morning, Patrick asked UCLA coach Jim Mora about Lane Kiffin.
“ I think he’s accepted responsibility,” Mora said. “I think that’s how you move on. He’s a friend of mine. His dad had a tremendous influence on my defensive philosophies. I got to work with him in New Orleans. I just wanted the guy to do well. I think he will if he’s given another shot.
“If there’s ever a situation where Lane was available and he was interested and there was a position available, he’s a guy anyone would want to consider.
“He’s a good football coach. He’s a really good play-caller. I’ve had to scheme up against him on defense, and when he’s got the quarterback he thinks can make it happen for him, he’s tough to defend, because he’s not predictable. He gives you wrinkles and he sets you up, and he’s a good play-caller.”
