09:08 AM ET 08.03 | Athletic Director Pat Haden, anticipating a barrage of questions about the topic, released a video last week saying Lane Kiffin was not on the "hot seat" and that he was behind his coach "100%." That might temporarily staunch queries from reporters and fans, but it won't quell the notion that Kiffin's job is on the line. Kiffin is 25-13 in three seasons. With a schedule that does not include regular-season games against Oregon or Washington, he could add substantially to that win total. But Kiffin cannot afford embarrassing incidents such as last season's jersey-switching and ball-deflating fiascoes.

No pressure - either way he can keep the hat.

Lane shouldn't worry about ball-deflating. That's Pat's job.

Oh well. Lane, best of luck to you in your future endeavors.

All coach Kiffin has to do is hand the play calling over to someone who knows what they are doing.
They have the guns to get er done.
