Tennessee football coach Lane Kiffin left the school last night to become the head coach at USC. Riots broke out across the Knoxville campus as students reacted angrily to the news. Kiffin held a brief press conference in his final moments at the school. During his remarks, he he said that "this was not an easy decision." Continuing, he added:
"This is something that happens very quick. We've been here 14 months, and the support has been unbelievable here. I really believe the only place I would have left here to go was... Southern California."
