Hello Kiffin/Ethical Pat "Chemistry" Watch

Bumped. GO BRUINS. -N

USA Today has an interesting article which raises 3 questions.

The article makes it look like sc AD Pat Haden is not a big fan of Lane Kiffin:

All of which raises this question: Would Nikias, a former dean of USC's engineering school, and Haden, a widely admired former USC star quarterback, Rhodes scholar and successful businessman and broadcaster, have hired the controversial Kiffin?

Haden, 57, sitting recently in the office he is decorating with framed pictures of old Trojans and new grandkids, hears the question, pauses for a long time, averts his glance to the ceiling, then exhales audibly.

"Lane Kiffin's our coach," he says. "Lane Kiffin is our coach."

And?

"I think Lane is … I know what Lane is," Haden continues. "Lane is an incredible recruiter, and Lane is a very good play-caller, and that's what I've known him as. He passed muster by three organizations. The Raiders— discount them if you want — hired him as their head coach. Tennessee hired him. And Mike Garrett and his staff hired him.

The first question is what is this about Haden being a successful businessperson after he helped preside over the stunningly spectacular IndyMac bank failure?

The second question is do you believe Haden, who was on the southern cal trustee board, when his body language expresses a lack of complete lack of comfort over the Kiffin hiring decision?     

And the third  question is how would you like to be Kiffin after that ringing endorsement from your boss?
