Titans suing Kiffin
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.
