    Lane Kiffin making $4 mil/year at USC?

    How can USC justify paying this guy that kind of dough? And his dad is making $2 mil as a coordinator. Unreal.

    Lane Kiffin's 'dream job' will pay him $4 million. For ... what, again? - Dr. Saturday - NCAAF - Yahoo! Sports

    Re: Lane Kiffin making $4 mil/year at USC?

    It takes the right coach to come in and continue the legacy of Pete Carroll....at cheating. Lane Kiffin showed in his one year at Tennessee that he is on his way to being one of the best coaches in the country....at breaking the rules. USC couldn't afford not to take this guy

    I have yet to decide if I think Lane Kiffin is the stupidest football coach ever or the smartest football coach ever. Maybe in another couple of years I will know.

    At some point this guy will be exposed for what he is not. I can't believe the jobs he has had with no real good stuff on his resume other than his name.

    I don't know if that is exactly true. Yes, he has the Kiffin name and his Dad's defensive legacy in the NFL has helped with that name but he was always being groomed for coaching. At USC, when he was an assistant under Carroll, he was being groomed to be a coordinator and head coach eventually and he had great success as the USC offensive coordinator (23-3 with a top 10 ranked offense every year). So, the next step was to the head coaching ranks. Now, this is where is got interesting and who can blame him with all that drama when your boss is Al Davis. It was Kiffin that did not want to draft Russell and looking back on that now, one can say that Kiffin was 100% correct in that and in the end, it was Davis who looked like an idiot with his firing. Next Tennessee and I admit, he did use them for that one year but even all of his blasting of other SEC coaches got Tennessee back on the national map in recruiting and in the news and that is what Tennessee needed. Then of course his dream job opened at USC and he took it and in that, we will see where his legacy lies in the coaching ranks.

    To say though that he will be exposed for what he is not comes very early also b/c he is only 35 years old and will probably be coaching for the next 20-30 years at some level. Only time will tell.

    In my opinion, I think he will turn USC back into the powerhouse of before with the USC location, name, recruiting and the assistant coaches he has, one cannot doubt what will happen there. Prediction: USC wins a National Championship again in the next 1-4 years.

    Re: Lane Kiffin making $4 mil/year at USC?

    Lane Kiffin was a pretty damn good coach wherever he was. I cannot blame him for the Raiders because, let's face it, the Raiders are a dead end organization. I thought he did OK at Tennessee with the exception of the trouble a few got into. In the end, I think he will be fine.

    I don't want to see USC be successful. I just think they will be.

    Or so I have read.

    Re: Lane Kiffin making $4 mil/year at USC?

    $4 million isn't that much out in southern california in comparison.

    That's why I still believe KF might be the highest paid coach in the country if you take into account the cost of living? $3 million a year in IC, is about the equivalent of making $8-$10 million in southern california.
