USC head coach Lane Kiffin is really stubborn when it comes to reporting player injuries. In fact, you could call him a bit of a diva about the issue. He recently attempted to ban a reporter from practice for reporting an injury and now he has walked out on the media because of a question.
On Wednesday, Kiffin was asked a question about a player’s injury during a press conference. The question caught Kiffin off guard and seemed to irritate him to the point that he cut the presser short and walked away.
“I don’t know,” Kiffin said before finishing the press conference with “I gotta go.”
Here is video of the press conference that was taken by FOX Sports reporter Lindsey Thiry.
Kiffin is not doing himself any favors with the media and his immature attitude is just continuing to make things worse. Everyone understands that the University of Southern California has a strict policy about disclosing injuries from practice but their head football coach has got to find a better way to handle it.
I gotta go.
