The hot seat under USC coach Lane Kiffin is just about on fire at this point. After a lackluster 7-6 campaign last season, it was widely assumed that Kiffin would need to resurrect the Trojans in 2013 to stay employed in LA. Two weeks in – things have already gone awry. The Trojans played an abysmal offensive game this past Saturday, losing to Washington State, 10-7. To make matters worse, recruits are starting to criticize Kiffin’s character. Four-star running back recruit Demario Richard, of Palmdale, California, took to Twitter this afternoon to give a conditional statement on whether he’d ever sign on to play for the Trojans. Richard elaborated a bit, when prompted: @TomVH I felt like it needed to be said . Everybody is scared to say it so imma say it. — Demario Richard (@TheFaceOfCali) September 11, 2013 Richard also claims he turned down Kiffin’s offer to attend USC because of something that happened at USC Junior Day back in February. @Soupster6 imma tell like I just too the other guy I TURNED DOWN THE USC OFFER BECAUSE OF KIFFIN AND THEY WAY I WAS DISRESPECTED AT JR. DAY — Demario Richard (@TheFaceOfCali) September 11, 2013 Surely, more will come out about what exactly occurred back in February. We’ll keep you updated.
