Lane Kiffin can't seem to get away from trouble. He was the Raiders head coach for a few seasons before given the boot by longtime owner Al Davis. He then tried to revive Tennessee football, before bolting for USC and California. That left Volunteer fans with a sour taste in their mouth, and now Kiffin has troubles arising once again at USC. Current Athletic Director Pat Haden wasn't around when Kiffin was hired, and has kept hush about Kiffin's job status thus far, but that could change in the next three months.
In a loss last Saturday to conference foe Oregon, a student manager was found to be deflating footballs on the USC sideline. Kiffin in a press conference acknowledged that the manager was "working alone" and was fired in the process. Colin Cowherd of ESPN Radio and host of SportsNation on ESPN, had callers and emails from student managers around the country on Thursday, and most of them all agreed that the manager surely wasn't working alone.
