* JerryMac said all this before me and better than me, so I need to link. I was delayed because I had to re-jigger my column for tomorrow (Could Mooch end up with the Raiders! Hey, why not?) and had the odd experience of reacting to the Kiffin news basically on live TV, sitting next to Brad Gilbert and two seats away from GPapa and Scott Ostler. Memorable.
This is an absolute shocker on multiple fronts. Kiffin was at Tennessee for just one season, and was seemingly on the way to building the Vols back into a powerhouse in the SEC following a few down years
Kiffin led Tennessee to a 7-6 record in his one season. (US Presswire)
What is going on at Southern Cal? Athletic director Mike Garrett hires Lane Kiffin away from Tennessee? Really? Yep, really. Dennis Dodd says Kiffin might end up winning, but don’t expect the AD to be around.
