According to ESPN, USC is on the verge of hiring current Titans running backs coach Kennedy Pola to serve as their offensive coordinator. However, current Titans head coach Jeff Fisher was not ecstatic about how the hiring has taken place.
“I am very disappointed in Lane Kiffin’s approach to this,” Fisher told The Tennessean on Saturday. “Typically speaking, when coaches are interested in hiring or discussing potential employment from coaches on respective staffs there is a courtesy call made from the head coach or athletic director indicating there is an interest in talking to the assistant.
This is not the first time Kiffin’s morals and professionalism has been questioned, after leaving the University of Tennessee for USC after only one season.
“So I am very disappointed in the lack of professionalism on behalf of Lane, to call me and leave me a voicemail after Kennedy had informed me he had taken the job. It is just a lack of professionalism.”
