Lane Kiffin: You Make the Call (Kiffin is taken to the woodshed)

So former Oakland Raiders head coach and Southern Cal offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin was announced as the University of Tennessee’s new head football coach on Nov. 30, to the great surprise of many and the expectation of none save perhaps a few insiders at the UT athletic department. Unlike fellow frontrunners for the job Mike Leach of Texas Tech and Brian Kelly of Cincinnati, Kiffin has no previous college head-coaching experience. In fact, his only head-coaching experience is with the Raiders, with whom he compiled a dreadful 5-15 record over the course of a season and change.
