Dave Hooker at GVX reported late Wednesday evening that Lane Kiffin offered an explanation about his use of the English language. Kiffin was quoted in the post as saying “When I said ‘incidents’, the conversation was dealing with arrests and we had not had any arrests in 11 months and 11 days.”
Hooker further reported that Kiffin said he did not believe Oliver was arrested and that would have made his statement about his team’s police record valid. Kiffin was then quoted as saying about Oliver that “[h]e was not arrested, and we dealt with it internally.”
I’m sorry coach, but that doesn’t fly. Richardson, Jantzen, and Jackson were arrested, and you dealt with that internally as well.
Hooker also reported that Kiffin said he doesn’t like using the word “arrest”. Then he quoted Kiffin as saying, “Sometimes I say ‘No arrests in 11 months.’ Sometimes I say ‘No incidents.’ ”
To whom? Sorry again, coach. Where were you quoted as saying “no arrests in 11 months”?
The credibility balloon is starting to get stretched just a little bit thin.
Our youngsters need mentors.
Our young coach needs a PR coach.
