Commentary: 'Dismissed' Lane Kiffin's job search could take him many places, most likely back to football
Kiffin can shift into other industries. He lives in Southern California. Ego and good-looks go a long way down there. He could be a movie director, an actor or a real estate agent. He could run for Congress. Hubris, arrogance, creative-honesty and poor PR seems to work in Washington.
Kiffin could make the natural jump and move to television. The problem is he will end up at Fox or maybe ESPN. The last thing college football needs is another television coach who doesn’t know what he is talking about. The good news is no one likes him. The media loves kicking him around. He’ll probably make his move, however, after Texas football coach Mack Brown gets fired sometime next month.
Kiffin will find work again. The bad news is it most likely be in football.
Again. Kiffin might even find work as a head coach. No matter how many times telemarketing fires me, I always find another call center job. Like college football, there is a lot of turnover in the call center industry. The only requirement in call center employment is breathing. College football has a one or two more requirements. Unfortunately, there will be some team someplace that will hire him. Maybe the EFL's Belfast Trojans are looking for a new coach. He could then keep the hat.
