USC Head Coach Lane Kiffin

Worst coach ever -- arguably -- Lane Kiffin just got the boot from USC ... hours after their crushing 62-41 loss to Arizona State.

Kiffin got the heave-ho after the team got home Sunday morning from Tempe -- the official announcement is slated for later today.

Lane never had it easy while coaching the Trojans -- In 2012 he took the team from number one in the country ... to UNRANKED -- the first time any team had achieved such a dubious goal in nearly a half-century.

Congratulations Trojans ... fight on!

After the way he left Tennessee he sort of deserves it. What comes around.

This guy needs to find another line of work...his only qualification for coaching is his last name and his fathers success. Fans and players hate him, and he does not win games, he has no clue what he is doing.

The man is a joke. First, the way he left Tennessee is inexcusable. Second, the man has a ton of talent on the team yet loses every weekend. USC has some of the best recruiting classes every year.

As for Kiffin's being the "worse coach ever," try comparing him to others who had to coach their teams through similar sanctions, like.... umm.... let's see.... no one ever. Kiffin took USC on during sanctions and took us through those sanctions, and we fired him in thanks. It's a sad day for USC.

No a kiffin Fan, unless its monte. You dont leave the sec, the sec leaves you! However, the sanctions against were tremendous. Prevented rankings, limited scholarships, no bowl games etc. so maybe not the worst coach ever.

There is a God...FINALLY USC comes to it's senses and makes a good decision on their football coach. Kiffin is such a duece bag...He's a PR nightmare, I hope he never coaches again.

Somehow the thought of Lane Kiffin getting fired at WallyPark at 3 am in the morning is just so...so satisfying. Note: It was probably in another LAX parking lot but WallyPark sounds better. :)
