Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Southern California head football coach Lane Kiffin was fired Sunday morning, just hours after the Trojans lost to Arizona State.
The Trojans fell to 3-2 overall and 0-2 in Pac-12 play with a 62-41 loss in Tempe on Saturday night.
USC athletic director Pat Haden informed Kiffin of his dismissal upon the team's arrival in Los Angeles early Sunday morning.
Kiffin, who was in his fourth season at USC, posted a record of 28-15 with the Trojans. USC had lost seven of its last 11 games.
The school said Haden would hold a press conference later Sunday.
