Apparently Lane Kiffin and the Southern California Trojans fired assistant coach Kennedy Pola because Kiffin felt threatened by Pola. According to Inside USC: A Pac-12 coach, who did not wish to be identified, said he heard USC assistant Kennedy Pola was fired because Lane Kiffin felt “threatened” by Pola. “He knew Kennedy was a no-nonsense guy and saw through the way things are done and isn’t afraid to speak up,” the coach said. “So he made a change.” Kiffin has been at USC since 2010 and was ranked number 1 in the preseason. Instead of living up to their ranking, Kiffin’s Trojans went 7-6 and lost to Georgia Tech in their bowl game. The future definitely doesn’t look bright for Lane Kiffin, especially if this is true.
