Tennessee fans celebrate the firing of Lane Kiffin
Other than USC fans, there is one group of people extremely happy over the firing of Lane Kiffin: Tennessee fans.
Kiffin, who was fired Sunday by USC, took the coaching job at Tennessee in 2009, and after many speeches about the Tennessee tradition and restoring the Volunteers to greatness, he bailed after only one season to take the USC job.
Former Volunteers quarterback Erik Ainge posted a photo on Twitter of Tennessee students posing in front of a large boulder on campus. On the photo is a special message: “Hey Kiffin, Karma is a Butch,” referring to current Tennessee Coach Butch Jones.
