VIdeo: Former USC Head Coach Lane Kiffin Opens Up About Firing
In his first interview since his firing, former USC head football coach Lane Kiffin admitted his shortcomings during his tenure at USC.
"Obviously I'm to blame being the head coach," Kiffin said. "There are a lot of things I should've done better."
Kiffin was fired on Sept. 29 after the team's 62-41 loss to Arizona State on the road. Assistant head coach Ed Orgergon was named interim head coach and helped lead a rejuvenated USC team to a 38-31 victory over Arizona on Thursday.
"To see the way they played the other night was awesome," Kiffin said. "I was so proud of those kids and that coaching staff."
However Kiffin did say it was a tough game to watch because it was like watching someone else raise his children.
Kiffin was interviewed by ESPN's Chris Fowler on the set of College GameDay. The de facto college football pregame show was in Seattle setting up the stage for tonight's Stanford-Washington game.
Kiffin donned a purple tie in support of his friend Steve Sarkisian who is the head coach of Washington.
