The PAC-10 just got louder

LOS ANGELES — Tennessee’s Lane Kiffin is the surprise choice of Southern California to replace Pete Carroll as football coach. The hiring was announced by the school Tuesday night, hours after Carroll was introduced as coach of the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks.

Kiffin, 34, is a disciple of Carroll, serving on his staff from 2001-06. In his last two seasons at USC, he was the offensive coordinator and recruiting coordinator.

Kiffin left USC in 2007 to coach the Oakland Raiders, becoming the youngest coach in the NFL’s modern era. He was fired, though, after four games of his second season.

I wonder if Kiffin’s gonna be as much of a goon as he was at Tennessee.
