USC athletic director Pat Haden held a press conference to discuss the decision to terminate Lane Kiffin.

After firing USC head football coach Lane Kiffin early Sunday morning, the Trojan athletic director Pat Haden, held a press conference to discuss the decision.

Haden opened the conference up by thanking Coach Kiffin for everything he has done for USC, and officially named Coach Ed Orgeron as the interim head coach.

Haden says the search for a new head coach is "in the future, not the now," so fans can expect to see Orgeron lead the Trojans for the next eight games.
