In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past few days, let me bring to your attention what happened this weekend that has USC Trojans fans and players rejoicing along with Tennessee Volunteers fans. The mighty Lane Kiffin — or as some know him: the Daniel Tosh-looking coach — has been fired from the USC head coaching position.
Why would Tennessee fans be so exuberant you might ask? Well, four years ago, the Volunteers hired the flaky coach and he seemed as if he was there for the long-run, stating he was excited to take down the rest of the SEC and turn Tennessee into a powerhouse. That last all of about a year and Kiffin left the Volunteers high and dry after a seven-win season and a bowl loss.
He soon became the most hated man in the state of Tennessee as he took the job at USC, turning his back on the Volunteers like they were a crazy ex-girlfriend. This year, the Volunteers hired Butch Jones who will likely take the Volunteers back to relevancy in the SEC. Meanwhile, Kiffin just lost his job in dramatic fashion at USC, being fired outside of the team bus on the way home from a 62-41 loss that sealed his fate.
Well, Tennessee fans took to what looks like the campus rock and wrote a nice little message to the newly-unemployed coach:

Awesome work by the Volunteers. Let’s see if Kiffin has to beg his way into a head coaching job somewhere. All we know is that he’s not allowed back in Tennessee.
