For a young coach, Lane Kiffin has experienced a lot of highs and lows.
From the exultation of winning national championships to the grief of being ignominiously fired, Kiffin has seen and felt things that coaches many years older will never know.
Interestingly, in some cases, Kiffin's bad times turned out to be good fortunes as you shall see later.
Overall, he has had more good times than bad, and while the name "Lane Kiffin" evokes much dislike, especially in SEC country, here in the Los Angeles southland he is mostly embraced. Trojan fans feel grateful that he is steering the cardinal and gold's future fortunes.
The following slideshow will look at some of the best moments thus far in his short career.
Not all of these moments occurred on the football field, and some have little to do with his coaching ability.
But to be certain, they all led to where Kiffin is now and where Trojan fans hope he will lead their beloved team in future.
