Finally not acting like a used Trojan, USC head coach Lane Kiffin accepts complete responsibility for the hideous autumn in Troy

Rather than acting like a used Trojan, University of Southern California (USC) head coach Lane Kiffin admirably admitted that he needs to mature as a man and leader to find success on the gridiron. Overseeing an utterly miserable campaign in Troy that saw USC go 7-6, Kiffin, who has compiled substandard records of 32-19 in college and 5-15 in the NFL, accepted complete responsibility...
