Flickr/Neon Tommy The only people that may be more excited than USC fans about Lane Kiffin’s pink slip are Tennessee fans, who are still sore about his sudden departure to Los Angeles three years ago after coaching a single season for the Vols. One UT athlete who was in Knoxville for that terrible breakup was Renaldo Woolridge, a forward on the Tennessee basketball team and a member of the 2010 Elite Eight squad.  In response to Kiffin’s departure, he wrote a rap song under his alter ego, Swiperboy, called “Never Leave You Like Kiffin.” But in 2012, Woolridge actually left Tennessee for USC, though he kept his promise by not leaving ‘like Kiffin.’ After receiving his degree in sociology from UT, he decided to spend his final year of eligibility with the Trojans in order to be closer to his family and his terminally ill father in L.A.  Within hours of Kiffin’s dismissal, Woolridge released a sequel called “Fired Like Kiffin,” in which he sent out a final diss to the Visored One while...
