There always seems to be comparisons between Lane Kiffin and Steve Sarkisian. Well, former USC assistant coach Willie Mack Garza paid $1,500 for tailback Lache Seastrunk and his mother to visit Tennessee.
Garza was hit with a three-year “showcause” order that puts severe restrictions on his ability to find another job with an NCAA institution. The amazing part is that everyone believed a micro-manager like Kiffin had no knowledge of the situation.
Perhaps Kiffin is advising Sarkisian right now on how to speak to USC and the NCAA. Or convince everyone an assistant coach, a notoriously cheap group by nature, would ever spend money on his own.
