USC football: Lane Kiffin at hearing as part of NCAA's 'Scared Straight' philosophy
USC's hearing before the NCAA's Committee on Infractions is back in session after a lunch break.
Running backs coach Todd McNair is still here, fielding questions for a second consecutive day.
Pete Carroll is gone, but Coach Lane Kiffin remains because the NCAA encourages schools to bring new coaches to hearings.
Kiffin, of course, isn't new to being a head coach. And he knows the NCAA from his years as a USC assistant and his controversial one-year stay at Tennessee. But this is his first infractions committee hearing.
Former committee chair Tom Yeager said last week that for new coaches, "it's almost like a 'Scared Straight' program."
"They don’t want to be there ever again," Yeager said of coaches. "They’ll tell a [committee] member, ‘I’m having a staff meeting within 20 minutes of getting back on campus. I’m never going to be sitting in that chair answering questions.'"
