    The way this came down, pulled off the bus and fired in the parking lot, says one thing to me: they hated the guy and couldn't wait to fire his azz.

    Being an obnoxious punk has its down side.

    Haden never liked Kiffy, his predecessor hired him as like a 4th choice after others turned him down. You know Pat Haden truly enjoyed sticking it to Kiffy.

    Saw a report that the Washington Huskies coach (Don't know how to spell his last name) was a leading candidate. He's a west coast guy who worked at USC. And he has UW rolling right now.

    The terrible on field performance aside, they must have seen the writing from a recruiting standpoint as well and decided to end it before he sets their program back 20 years.

    Per Scout their 2012 class had 15 players, ranked 20th; 2013 class 18th with 12 players; and so far 2014 class ranked 57th with only 7 3 star players so far. At that rate they'll recruit 60 players over a 4 year cycle. That is big big trouble.

    So Kiffin has millions and now gets to spend quality time with his wife every day. He probably told Haden in the parking lot, "This helps me more than you'll ever know."

    This. The guy clearly can't coach, but he's certainly not the idiot we all make him out to be. This morning he's laughing all the way to the bank...

    Glad I stayed awake last night to see his last game. It was hilarious watching the look on his face.

    Did he quickly call a timeout last night, nullifying a Trojan TD? I'll never forget that last year. A true genius.

    At least they didn't throw him under it. That is, not literally.
