Cordell Broadus, Snoop Dogg’s Son, Slams Former USC Coach Lane KiffinBy: Meaghan Ellis - October 2, 2013
Most people may not be aware of the kid, but nearly everyone has heard of his father. For those who don’t know Cordell Broadus, he’s the youngest son of platinum-selling rapper, Snoop Dogg. However, these days, the younger Broadus is slowly making a name for himself, but not in the music industry.
Broadus is laudably ranked as the No. 6 high school wide receiver in the state of California, and a USC football prospect. According to US Magazine, Broadus has actually received numerous college offers from the likes of USC, LSU, Nebraska, and UCLA.
So, when it comes to football – especially USC football – its safe to say he’s definitely an enthusiast who takes the game seriously. With that being said, it’s obvious the Diamond Bar High School junior felt some kind of way about former USC head coach Lane Kiffin’s approach to the game. Judging from Kiffin’s abrupt termination Sunday, Broadus isn’t the only person who disapproved of the coach’s progress. But, Broadus is probably one of the few who actually voiced his opinion.
In a short interview with 247Sports, Broadus weighed in on Kiffin’s termination. “I feel that he should have been fired a while ago and USC is going to raise the bar now because the new coaching staff next year and I’m anxious to see what they are going to look like,” said Broadus. While he did have a point, the delivery probably could have used a little tweaking, which may be the reason Broadus took to Twitter with a more civil approach to the matter.
Former USC head coach Lane Kiffin was terminated early Sunday morning upon returning from Saturday’s game where the Trojans suffered a 62-41 loss to Arizona. The defeat left the Trojans with a 3-2 overall season record, and a 0-2 conference standing in the Pac-12. The team has lost 7 of their last 11 games. USC’s assistant head coach, Ed Orgeron, has been appointed as the interim head football coach for the duration of the 2013 season.
