Trojans Fired Kiffin 9/30/13
LOS ANGELES - Lane Kiffin has been fired as football coach at Southern California. The dismissal came just hours after the Trojans dropped to 0-2 in conference play after a 62-41 loss at Arizona State.
The Trojans posted a short news release to the athletic department website, saying that athletic director Pat Haden informed Kiffin of the decision "upon the team charter's arrival back in Los Angeles" after the defeat.
Kiffin went 28-15 at USC in parts of four seasons, but his team is 0-2 in conference play for the first time since 2001.
