    I'm with SeaRay on this. I don't see how USC or Kiffin can violate a contract that they are not party too. They are not part of the NFL or the the Titans.

    Kiffin and USC sure look like they have a lot of egg dripping off their faces. Plenty of blame to get spread all around.

    What's funny is he's a terrible coach and keeps getting away with this stuff, like a con man.
    Go Gators!

    What contract did USC breach? The one between the asst coach and the Titans? How can they breach a contract they didn't agree to? If you agree to a contract with your employer, that's your problem. There's no way I can breach your contract. I might say it was a stupid contract and one I'd never sign.

    As a Vols fan, boy am I glad that dude is gone. I hated that head coaching hire almost as bad as I hated the Johnny B. Baker Jr. hiring.

    Tortious interference. Can't knowingly encourage, assist, etc. someone to breach their contract with another party.

    EDIT to add Wikipedia entry that is as good a basic explanation as anything: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tortious_interference

    How is USC to know what was in that contract?

    That's an element of the case the plaintiff would need to prove obviously. For now, we (or at least a court deciding whether to throw the suit out) have to assume USC knew, though, based on the article.

    ETA what the article says on this point: "The lawsuit also notes Southern California and Kiffin, through Pola, knew about his contract requirements."

    Lane Kiffin is one of the few human beings alive that God would forgive you for speaking bad about him at his funeral.
