This guy is a great snake oil recruiter but he really is a poor coach. Recruits need to wake up IMHO.
He really is a poor coach. How my years has he been a head coach? 4 or 5 years I think. What the fuck has this dude done? What big game has he actually won? He's a friggin cheater and a snake and always will be.
37-34 career coaching record (includes nfl) says everything i need to know. the guy isnt a good coach. you and i can recruit top athletes to go to usc, not overly difficult.
Now why do you imagine USC hired him?
I was wondering how Kiffin recruited at Tennessee. Was he a great recruiter at Tennessee? I don't recall. In any case, he's doing great with recruiting at USC but, as Great2BeLucky said, "you and I can recruit top athletes to go to USC".
Lane's coaching record isn't very impressive and leading the pre-season #1 to a 7-6 season is downright deplorable. I LOVE IT !

He did have to deal with the sanctions so depth is an issue there. Their front line talent was top notch though.
Their defense has sucked the last few seasons, that's where Carroll would dominate when at USC. Kiffin isn't in Carroll's league as a coach though, can't imagine they'll keep him around too much longer.

It's quite simple yet I'm not sure that too many opposing head coaches/recruiters are using Lame Kiffin's poor record as a head coach, the sanctions, etc to recruit against TSOW.
How they're ranked #1 or #2 in the recruiting rankings is beyond me. I say we go after them. Allow Kerry Coombs to speak to those recruits as he did some of the recruits who came here to visit a few weeks ago.
Tell these recruits that U$C is a fad of the past. How the Pete Carroll era that they grew up adoring, is over! Ask them where are all those "great" U$C recruits today. The David Ausberry's, the Matt Leinarts, the LenDale Whites, the Dwayne Jarretts, the Mike Williams', the Stanley Havilis, the Taylor Mays', the John David Bootys, the Patrick Turners, the Mark Tylers, the Joe McKnights, the Mark Sanchez's (being the worst NFL QB and one of the biggest draft busts in recent memory), Kevin Ellisons, Damien Williams, Aaron Corps, Mitch Mustains and a bunch more.
Tell them how there, you're just another number but here you can become a legend. Don't go there for the weather because you'll play in good weather wherever you go and play--esp since most of the games are played between late August and mid November. Bowl games are mostly played out west or down south.
Compare our record to theirs over the past five years. Compare the number of BC$ bowls we've been in and overall our consistency over those years.
His recruiting at Tenn. wasn't bad at all given he was only there for a coffee break. Count me in as one who can't figure out how he keeps getting jobs, he has done NOTHING everywhere he has been. He is definately very very shady at everything he does, allegedly hired "HOSTESSES" while at Tenn. to recruit highschool players. Allegedly deflated game balls at U$C, also change player numbers at U$C. These are just a few things while touching the surface.
Hell, even his daddy is leaving him at U$C...you do the math.
Just a matter of time until Pat Haden shows him the way out of U$C.
He's done nothing Bri.
He was 5-15 in Oakland.
1 year at Tennessee he went 7-6.
3 years at USC and he's 25-13.
He's 32-19 college and career he's 37-34. Just barely above .500 and he's 0-2 in bowl games.
He sucks! I don't understand how that resume justifies paying the man over $4 million a year.
I guess the thing he is the best at is fooling those dumb enough to pay him that much money.
This just in...
He's a douche.
Ummm...it's been in for a while now.
He's still a douche.
