Lane Kiffin leaves UT for USC
Lane Kiffin has officially left the building.
The former Tennessee head football coach hardly had time to waste.
As quickly as the hiring process landed Kiffin his new job, he headed for a plane to Los Angeles to start it immediately on Wednesday afternoon.
"I'm sure eventually it will sink in, but it all happened so fast and there are so many things to do because this was such a tough decision," Kiffin exclusively told the News Sentinel. "Tennessee is such a great place and we were touched by so many people in our time here - everybody was so great from the university to the fans and the community.
"But really this is the one place that I'd leave for, and I hope people understand that."
Whether they do or not, Kiffin is already on the way.
