At this rate, Lane Kiffin is an 8-5 season at USC away from a $50 million contract to coach Peyton Manning and the Colts.
Seriously, why not? Why wouldn’t he just keep rising up the coaching ranks on the basis of nothing much at all? If a 31-year-old with no head-coaching experience can get the Oakland Raiders job, and a guy who got fired from that job after losing 15 of 20 games can get the Tennessee job, and a guy who went 7-6 in a reckless first season in Knoxville can get the USC job … is there any rung of the sport to which Kiffin cannot climb?
I mean, what if he actually does something impressive as a coach? Win a conference title and they might just fast-track him into the Hall of Fame.
Paris Hilton has paid more dues than Lane Kiffin.
