NASHVILLE, TENN. (AP) - Coach Jeff Fisher has one word to describe the theory that the Titans sued Southern California because the NFL team is in the same state as Lane Kiffin’s last employer.


The Titans accuse USC and Kiffin of breaching the contract of running backs coach Kennedy Pola a week before training camp. The lawsuit was filed Monday.

Kiffin said Thursday he thought the Titans’ location prompted the lawsuit. Kiffin left his job as the University of Tennessee in January.

Fisher is baffled at the idea that the Titans sued to pacify Volunteers fans. He says: “How one could think they would combine the two is absurd to me.”
