In a surprise to many, Lane Kiffin left his job as coach at Tennessee after only one year to become the new football coach at USC, replacing the departing Pete Carroll. Students on the Tennessee campus considered him a traitor for returning to the Trojans, where he was an assistant to Carroll from 2001 to 2006. Kiffin said USC was the only job he would leave Tenneesse for and led the Trojans to an 8-5 record in his first season.
