Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Ten­nessee Ti­tans are su­ing South­ern Cal­i­for­nia and coach Lane Kif­fin for “ma­li­ciously” lur­ing away as­sis­tant run­ning backs coach Kennedy Pola a week be­fore train­ing camp opens.

The law­suit ac­cuses USC and Kif­fin of vi­o­lat­ing Pola’s con­tract that re­quired him to have writ­ten per­mis­sion to dis­cuss a job with any­one other than the Ti­tans. Ten­nessee hired Pola as run­ning backs coach in Fe­bru­ary, only to lose him Satur­day to USC. He is the Tro­jans’ new of­fen­sive co­or­di­na­tor and run­ning backs coach.

Ti­tans coach Jeff Fisher, a USC alum, told The Ten­nessean news­pa­per he was very dis­ap­pointed in Kif­fin’s lack of pro­fes­sion­al­ism.
