For whatever reason, USC head coach Lane Kiffin will always be hated amongst all forms of football fans for as long as he coaches.
Kiffin has had a whirlwind coaching career at the tender age of 36. In 2007, he was hired by the Raiders as the youngest head coach in NFL history. Raiders owner Al Davis couldn't throw him out the door fast enough.
Kiffin's next spat transpired at Tennessee, where Kiffin spent a year ticking off every major opponent in the SEC. He accused Florida's Urban Meyer of recruiting violations in his first press conference.
Not only was he wrong, but it was found that Kiffin was the one doing the cheating.
For his next trick, Kiffin bolted Tennessee for USC, but not before stealing some coaches and high-ranking athletic people first. There hasn't been a riot that big in Knoxville since Peyton Manning went pro.
All this guy does is make people angry. He has been a fairly decent coach, but he talks like a guy who has won 12 national titles.
Things are no different this season. Kiffin told the media that he thought his team was horrible following a 17-14 victory and that they had no playmakers on offense. No playmakers at USC? Give me a break.
Who knows what he will do with USC, but he owns the title of the most hated coach in college football without much of a contest.
