Ouch: @SnoopDogg's son, nation's #6 WR in 2015 class, on Lane Kiffin: "He should have been fired a while ago."

I'm a USC fan...I hope that doesn't happen.
Also speaking as a fan who knows a bit more about the team than some of you casual haters...observers...the problem for USC was not Lane Kiffin, it was the over the top sanctions which have crippled the team for the past three seasons and created paper thin depth. Even with those challenges, they were finding ways to win. But as the games /season wore on...injuries would mount, and the players would get fatigued and worn out.

Kiffin isn't without his faults, but he was being asked to be a miracle worker and had limited resources to work with.

USC fired him because key recruits said they were concerned about him...which is the wrong reason to fire him. Every weekend USC lines up across from a team with recruiting advantage and more depth than them...

Oh like Hawaii.

Hawaii made Kiffins offense look like crap, I've never seen an offense look so dysfunctional of all the times USC has played Hawaii. The problem was clear and USC took care of it quickly.

USC should be the last people worried about recruits or lack of depth.
Jack Del Rio?

Who cares it Kiffin was to blame or not. He deserves this. About time his past transgressions got to him. The guy is a douche. There is a football God after all.

Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. They should have hired Del Rio the first time around
Do we take a shot at him for OC next year?

It's about time.
Did he really say "Over the top sanctions"? Yeah, it's not like they haven't repeatedly committed NCAA violations time and time again to cheat their way to the top. lol

Rumors are USC will hire Del Rio this week but Del Rio will finish the NFL season. USC can still get it's recruit on if the recruits know NFL coach material is on the way.
