It is said that everyone has a doppelganger – someone who looks exactly the same as another person.

In the case of University of Alabama offensive coordinator, Lane Kiffin,  Daniel Tosh fits the bill.

Tosh is a comedian, actor, and writer who hosts the Comedy Central television show – “Tosh.0.

This week, Tosh took advantage of his striking resemblance to Kiffin to reveal his impression of a Lane Kiffin “call in” television show.

Along with his stunning “wife”, played by UFC ring girl Chrissy Blair, “Kiffin” fielded calls from fans of the Alabama Crimson Tide, the Auburn Tigers, the USC Trojans, and the Tennessee Volunteers.

Watch as “Lane” takes calls from these unhappy fans on “Kiffin’s Krimson Korner”.

Lane Kiffin

And here’s another disturbing anecdote of ESPN perhaps having too much power. On ESPN’s  College GameDay last Saturday, the network called for Southern California coach Lane Kiffin to be fired in the form of a poorly written and ill conceived prepared statement by radio buffoon Paul Finebaum. Kiffin was fired less than 24 hours later.

Never mind that Kiffin was trying to coach a team limited by extremely harsh scholarship reductions with inexperienced quarterbacks who were having a tough time absorbing USC’s complicated offensive system. Finebaum, with a flimsy monologue short on substance that read like it was scribbled on a cocktail napkin between sips of fruity drinks, called Kiffin the Miley Cyrus of college football. A few hours later, Kiffin’s boss, an actual Rhodes scholar no less, was pressured into firing his coach.

Southern Cal, by the way, plays most of its games on Fox.

Less than 24 hours after ESPN’s Paul Finebaum called Lane Kiffin “the Miley Cyrus of college football”, Kiffin was out as head football coach at the University of Southern California.

Finebaum appeared on  ESPN’s College GameDay Saturday morning and blasted Kiffin on national TV.  There is no doubt that USC movers and shakers were in the audience.

“In some respects, Lane Kiffin is the Miley Cyrus of College Football.  He has very little talent, but we simply can’t keep our eyes off of him.”

He went on to predict that Kiffin would be fired soon and enforced a common public perception that the USC coach often appears childish.

“I think Kiffin will be gone at the end of the season. For the sake of SC fans, I hope this time around the school will hire an adult to be its next head coach.”

Finebaum has a reputation for his relentless pursuit of under-performing college football coaches.  According to an old show introduction, The Paul Finebaum Show  is where MOST college football coaches are fired.

So, it came as no surprise that Finebaum had Kiffin “in his cross hairs”, but did we expect the radio host’s prediction would come true by the end of the weekend?

The USC Trojans fired coach Lane Kiffin this morning – hours after loosing to the Arizona State Sun Devils 62-41 .

A statement on the USC website indicated that Trojans athletic director, Pat Haden, broke the news to Kiffin.

A source told ESPN’s Joe Schad that Trojans assistant head coach Ed Orgeron will be named interim coach.  Orgeron is also USC’s recruiting coordinator and defensive-line coach.
