Jeff Fisher calls latest Lane Kiffin comments “ridiculous”

USC coach Lane Kiffin says the lawsuit filed against him by the Tennessee Titans has more to do with acrimony toward him in Tennessee than with the legal merits of the case.

Titans coach Jeff Fisher says Kiffin couldn’t be more wrong.

I think that’s absolutely ridiculous,” Fisher said on the Dan Patrick Show.

Fisher said he couldn’t get into too many details about the lawsuit, but he did say that head coaches typically do each other the courtesy of letting each other know if one coach plans to offer another coach’s assistant a job. Fisher says Kiffin didn’t extend that courtesy.

“There’s a protocol,” Fisher said. “There’s a courtesy call. . . . It happens all the time. In this particular case, it did not happen.”
