A recent news item we didn't report was that USC hired former Tennessee Titans running backs coach Kennedy Pola to be the offensive coordinator there. Pola had previous ties to USC and it's a title upgrade and a pay bump, so no big deal, right? Well, Titans coach Jeff Fisher complained that USC didn't ask for permission first and called Lane Kiffin "unprofessional," so that makes it more interesting. But, if we reported every unprofessional thing the man did, we'd have to change the site's name to Kiffin Watch 24/7.
Anyway, the Titans have sued USC and Kiffin for inducing Pola to break his contract. It's true that coaches change jobs all the time without getting sued, but when teams go through official channels to get permission, it's not a problem. USC didn't ask first though, and Fisher had fired his old running backs coach to hire Pola specifically. This could get ugly, and it couldn't have happened in a more fitting state.
