Former USC coach Lane Kiffin, who was unceremoniously fired back in September after a blowout loss to Arizona State, has come to a similar conclusion as much of the Trojans fan base about who the future head coach should be in Los Angeles. He believes that interim coach Ed Orgeron is the man for the job.
Kiffin on next USC coach: “That’s easy. That’s already done. It should be Ed Orgeron. How can you argue what he’s done?”

“How could you even think you could bring in someone from outside… even if they played there 30 yrs ago”- Kiffin. SHOTS FIRED at Del Rio.

Orgeron has led the Trojans to a 5-1 record since Kiffin’s firing, including an upset victory over No. 4 Stanford this past Saturday.
While I highly doubt that USC cares what Kiffin has to say on the matter, it’s interesting to see a former coach endorsing his replacement. We’ll find out in a month or two what the Trojans plan to do.
