Former Lane Kiffin QB Talks About What He's Like As A Head Coach
© Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports
One of Lane Kiffin’s former QBs at USC, Mitch Mustain, recently spilled the beans on what it's like having him as a head coach. And it wasn't too complimentary. Per the Sun-Sentinel...

Mustain’s final season at USC was Kiffin’s first. It was Kiffin’s third head coaching gig in four years, and he was taking over for beloved coach Pete Carroll. Mustain, who began his career at Arkansas, entered the season in a quarterback competition with Matt Barkley, who eventually won the job.

“There was nothing unique about what he did,” Mustain said. “It just seemed to us, there was no effort for it. It was almost as if he was wholly disinterested in being the head coach. You can tell he enjoys the play-calling. He enjoys working with the offense and making that run. He was very good at it. As for the whole thing, it seemed that maybe it just wasn’t really where he wanted to be.”
Sounds like Mitch Mustain hopes he can get better...

“I think a lot of people think of him as this buffoon figure,” Mustain said. “I’ve heard it 10 times: ‘He’s spoiled. He’s riding on his dad’s coattails.’ I can understand why that stands, but I think a lot of people don’t understand that Lane Kiffin is honestly a very intelligent, very capable football coach.

“Honestly, I hope that Lane can rebuild it. In terms of his head coaching reputation, I hope he can iron it out. I hope he can come up with something that works and do a better job. I don’t know. It’ll be interesting.”

He didn't bash him much. On the contrary, he actually spoke quite highly of him. Misleading headline. Typical BS media ploys to rile up the mouth-breathers too lazy to read.

Mitch Mustain is pretty salty about how his college career went, so I'd take anything he says with a grain of salt.

Didn't sound to salty to me. Actually sounds like he respects him as an offensive coach and just holes he figures out how to coach the whole team.
