Former Tennessee and USC coach Lane Kiffin has proven to be, what you'd call, a horrible coach. And now we can add recruiter to that resume. According to csnchicago.com
, this is how Kiffin tried to recruit former South Carolina and now up and coming Chicago Bears star WR Alshon Jeffery...
In 2009, Jeffery was in the midst of a recruiting battle between Tennessee and South Carolina. He later committed to South Carolina. Kiffin, then coach at Tennessee, was heavily involved in the recruiting.
According to Jeffrey, Kiffin told the future Bear if he committed to South Carolina, he would end up ‘pumping gas for the rest of his life like all the other players from that state who had gone to South Carolina.’
Jeffery has 75 receptions along with 1,193 receiving yards and six touchdowns this season. And as of Tuesday evening, not pumping gas.
