Lane Kiffin was surprisingly fired early this morning by USC athletic director Pat Haden after the Trojans returned home from a brutal ass-whipping at the hands of Arizona State. You know how things go after coaches are fired: 1) Negative behind-the-scenes details that may be weeks or months old trickle out; 2) a list of replacement candidates, likely or bizarre, emerge; 3) the media calls recruits of the team that just canned its coach to get reaction.
In 2013, it only took a few hours for media members to get in touch with recruits. Here’s what Snoop Dogg’s son, Cordell Broadus, said about Lane Kiffin:
“I feel that he should have been fired a while ago and USC is going to raise the bar now because the new coaching staff next year and I’m anxious to see what they are going to look like.”
Harsh. Broadus, a 6-foot-3 wide receiver, is only a junior. [via 247 Sports via Bruce Feldman]
