Titans Sue USC, Kiffin Over Pola Hire

The Tennessee Titans are suing USC and their football head coach, Lane Kiffin, for "maliciously" luring away assistant running backs coach Kennedy Pola a week before training camp opens.

Jim Wyatt's article in the Tenessean, says that Tennessee Football Inc., the company that owns the Titans, filed the lawsuit in something called "Davidson County Chancery Court."

Pola is accused of breach, after only being hired February 1st, and that "as a result of USC and Kiffin’s tortuous conduct, Tennessee football has been damaged in an amount proven at trial."

The Titans have not commented publicly Monday, but back on Saturday Titans head coach (and USC alum himself) Jeff Fisher was less than pleased...

Here's how mad he was back on the weekend...

The HQ's favorite line of the whole thing...???
Kiffykin's response...

"I have spoken with Coach Fisher and he now has an accurate understanding of the timeline of events."

Sure, kiddo...

Here's the filing, for those of you who like reading those things...
