Updated -- Shocker: Lane is Discourteous (Screws Over Trogan Alum Jeff Fisher)

Ex-Trogan Jeff Fisher, coach of the Tenn. Titans (who I saw tip an under thrown pass to Freeman McNeill for a thrilling Bruin victory) has had one of his assistant coaches poached by Mr. Kiffin.  Protocol be dashed, Lane didn't even ask permission.  Instead, he did the Mike Garrett trick of "dialogue by Voicemail."  Here are some excerpts:

"I am very disappointed in Lane Kiffin's approach to this," Fisher told The Tennessean on Saturday. "Typically speaking, when coaches are interested in hiring or discussing potential employment from coaches on respective staffs there is a courtesy call made from the head coach or athletic director indicating there is an interest in talking to the assistant.

"So I am very disappointed in the lack of professionalism on behalf of Lane, to call me and leave me a voicemail after Kennedy had informed me he had taken the job. It is just a lack of professionalism."

Yep, the new era of ethical conduct at Troy is off to an excellent start.

UPDATE (B):

Per SI, Hello Kiffin has come up with a rather lame excuse:

"Kiffin attempted to rectify the damage later Saturday, finally reaching Fisher and discussing the abrupt move. Kiffin then issued a statement that didn't exactly deny he had breached protocol, saying he first spoke to Pola on Friday, and then called Fisher on Saturday after Pola called him back, apparently to accept the job.

"I have spoken with Coach Fisher and he now has an accurate understanding of the timeline of events,'' Kiffin said. "We realize the timing of this isn't perfect for all parties, but this is a great opportunity and promotion for Kennedy.''
