In parts of four season with the University of Southern California Trojans Kiffen has a respectable 28-15 record. However losing 7 out of your last 11 games is not good. Starting your conference season 0-2 is not great either. Last season the Trojans were a preseason number one team they finished unranked.
Lane Kiffin will probably coach again, he is young, and he has some experience. Is he a good coach? I don't know. Perhaps he turns his players into great men which would indicate he is an incredible coach. What I have observe is he isn't a loyal coach (Tennessee) and he didn't get the job done at USC. Maybe he will be a bit humble. If a school takes a chance to hire him will he stay loyal or will he jet as soon as a more appealing opportunity comes about? Can't really blame him for jumping ships soon, I mean schools don't have loyalty to coaches either. But I am sure that is a question schools interested in Kiffin will be asking.
He could be an entertaining coach if he gets another chance. If he could stick around a place and have a bit of success. There are a lot of could, maybes and questions around Kiffin I hope he finds answers.
