USC has hired Tennessee coach Lane Kiffin, sources say— Joe Schad (@schadjoe) January 13, 2010
ESPN's National College Football Reporter, Joe Schad, has just reported via Twitter that Tennessee Head Coach Lane Kiffin has been hired to fill the USC head spot vacated by Pete Carroll. (Chris Low has now confirmed it as well). Kiffen has repeatedly declined to comment on the matter this week and Knoxville media has downplayed the possibility. Still, this has been the hot rumor today with other PAC 10 media folks citing "credible sources" on the matter. ::UPDATE:: It's official.
