LOS ANGELES (AP) - Southern California has fired Lane Kiffin, ending the coach's tumultuous tenure a few hours after the Trojans lost 62-41 at Arizona State.
Ed Orgeron was picked as USC's interim head coach by athletic director Pat Haden later Sunday. The Trojans (3-2, 0-2 Pac-12) have eight games left on their 13-game schedule.
Orgeron was Kiffin's assistant head coach and the former Mississippi head coach.
Haden fired Kiffin at the Trojans' private airport terminal when the team plane returned from Arizona early Sunday morning, but not before a 45-minute meeting in which Kiffin tried to change Haden's mind. The Trojans matched the most points allowed in school history in their seventh loss in 11 games.
