The KNOXVILLE NEWS-SENTINEL reports this week that Lane Kiffin recently revealed his inspiration for dealing with a crisis.
“I could sit here and say, ‘Why did Oakland happen? Why did leaving Tennessee cause the trouble it did?’ Those things happened to prep me for this, to be a stable manager in a crisis. My model was Obama and his coolness under fire, the confidence he projects during disaster.”
Only place I would characterize Kiffin as a “stable manager” would be Santa Anita.
