As one of the most hated [former] coaches in college football, Lane Kiffin is getting ready to garner some apparently wanted attention. The former USC Trojans head coach was fired just two weeks ago after a blowout loss against the Arizona State Sun Devils. While he was fired in embarrassing fashion, the former coach has had no shortage of shame, agreeing to an appearance on ESPN’s College Gameday this Saturday.

It won’t be a long drive for Kiffin, as he will have to drive up the coast to Seattle for the Washington Huskies‘ matchup with the Oregon Ducks. How ironic is it that he will be going to a game against former Pac-12 foes and talking about those teams’ keys to victory? Well, maybe he won’t even be there to talk about the game — it could be a set-up to embarrass the guy.

While I don’t think he would be purposely embarrassed by the Gameday crew, I do believe it will be one of the most awkward guest appearances of all time. Yes, even more awkward than Ryan Lochte‘s appearance that proved he has the personality of a pencil case.

Kiffin has never been a fan of the media and now he will be acting as one. To make matters worse, Paul Finebaum, the analyst who called Kiffin the Miley Cyrus of college football, will be there.

The way he was fired was hilarious, the fact that he’s agreeing to this is just weird and the actual appearance will be downright awkward.

Way to go, Lane.
