Titans, USC settle over Kiffin’s hiring of coach
Question of the Day
NASHVILLE, TENN. (AP) - The Tennessee Titans have settled their lawsuit with the University of Southern California over Trojans coach Lane Kiffin hiring away an assistant coach just before training camp last July.
The Titans and USC announced Wednesday in a joint statement that settlement terms are private but called it an “amicable” resolution. The lawsuit is expected to be dismissed in a few weeks.
The Titans‘ lawsuit accused USC and Kiffin of using “improper means” to induce Pola to breach his contract with the NFL team. But USC and Kiffin offered Pola better job security than the Titans because his NFL contract ran to Feb. 14, 2011, though the team later extended their assistants’ deals through 2012.
Tennessee charged that Pola needed written permission from the team president and general counsel because verbal consent wasn’t adequate, which both Southern California and Kiffin knew about through Pola. Fisher also criticized Kiffin’s professionalism to a newspaper reporter.
