Times are a changin’ in Troy, as USC athletic director Pat Haden dropped the guilotine on Lane Kiffin Sunday morning, following a 62-41 blowout loss to the Arizona State Sun Devils.
The result? A podcast full of opinions and takes. With Andie Hagemann, Alicia de Artola, Trenise Ferreira, Matthew Moreno and Josh Webb, Michael Castillo hosts this 22nd episode of the podcast entitled “Kiffin Sleeps With the Fishes.”
We dissect the firing, while looking ahead to the future of the USC program, both this year and beyond.
Here’s what on tap in the podcast:
- Breaking news hit cell phones across the Southland just before 5:00 a.m. on Sunday morning. How did our staff react to the news at that moment? We talk it out, in addition to providing insight as to what led to Haden’s middle-of-the-night sacking of Lane Kiffin.
- Whenever someone gets fired, it means that someone has to get hired. We look at some of the names in the mix, as we each pick a guy we think would be a good fit and one that would be a bad fit. SPOILER Alert: Jack Del Rio fit one of those categories for someone.
- There’s still eight games left on the docket and a lot to play for with interim head coach Ed Orgeron. A the possibility of making the Pac-12 title game seems all but gone, but what can we expect from the Trojans under Coach O, and is he the right guy for the short term?
Stay tuned to Reign of Troy Radio, as we’ll have another installment early next week to preview the Thursday nighter against Rich Rod’s Arizona Wildcats.
