Pat Haden Backs Lane Kiffin

The dreaded vote of confidence...

Can't say this is surprising.

In fact it is a pointless question at this point. Haden can control Kiffin. He will give Kiffin a chance to coach the team one the sanctions are over, just like he did with Kevin O'Neill.

There are those who will say Haden is standing by his man...for me Haden doesn't really have a choice. He doesn't want to pay a buy out. USC is still radioactive with the sanctions, so a top flight coach might wait and fan expectations are now at an all time low.

So why make a change?

By the way...USC is picked to finish third by the coaches in the Pac-12 South.

Great times!!

FIGHT ON!
