He's the epitome of everything wrong with America.  He was born into a career that he was objectively terrible at, and continued to receive promotions to prestigious jobs despite his actual performance.  And when the jig was finally up, he got himself a golden parachute.

fark everything about him.

Don't disparage Joey Freshwater like that!

So, for realz, maybe it's time for Jerry Jones to hire him and dump that hand-clapping, soul-stealing, utility belt-wearing, ginger robot Jason Garrett? Cowboys need a distraction from their dumpster fire of a season...

So I got about 40% through reading the damn article, and life's a bit too short right now (or ever) for me to read the rest, but I didn't see anything to convince me that I should hate this guy.

Seriously, the article reads like a typical resume in football.

Thinking about it, a football resume is simply a list of all the places that fired you. The more the merrier, and getting fired by the Raiders, USC, Tennesee, Alabama...

... sure, this guy sucks. Let's hire someone who wasn't fired from the CFL. (/end sarcasm)

//takes over the Raiders and goes 5-15 and gets fired? Gruden would like to be Lane Kiffin when he grows up.

To be fair, the article is titled five fun facts about Lane Kiffin. The submitter is the dolt who thinks we should hate Kiffin for those five fun facts. Welcome to Fark, I guess.

I forgive subby.

I was just drinking, thinking about the "football resume" thing.

That's the weird thing about football. Everybody sucks. Marino didn't win a SB? He sucks. Jim Marshall runs the wrong way once? He sucks. Denny Green or Jim Mora have a funny post game press tantrum? They suck.

/welcome to football

How can anyone possibly hate Lane Kiffin? He made USC, Fresno State, Al Davis, Tennessee, and Nick Saban look like total jackasses. What he lacks in coaching ability he's more than made up in chutzpah.

He hasn't been objectively terrible at it, though; he imptoved every team he went to except the Raiders, and the Raiders bear a lot of that burden for saddling him with JaMarcus Russell, who was terrible even in college (the few times he faced even a good college defense) despite playing with three first-round WRs and a first-round RB surrounding him.

? Al Davis was already a jackass so it would take some extreme talent to make it more so - on the contrary, Lane Kiffin actually made Al Davis look coherently smart for once.

He did well under Carroll at USC and even as a head coach for USC for awhile but that shellacking by ASU was the final straw - not sure he made them look like jackasses however it does appear USC hasn't been the same since.

Saban was throwing him a bone getting him a gig to pad his resume however from what I've heard, the relationship got toxic after he was negotiating with FAU and doing some "to-the-side" recruiting - kind of like a conflict of interest so it would appear Kiffin was still being Kiffin here....
