USC football: Lane Kiffin did not give Brice Butler a fair chance, father says
USC receiver Brice Butler is a case in point.
Butler's playing time diminished last season with the arrival of freshman Robert Woods, who started and went on to become a freshman All-American.
Butler announced this week via twitter that he is transferring.
Butler's father Bobby, a former NFL player, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that it was the "right move" and that USC Coach Lane Kiffin did not give his son a fair chance. You can read the whole post here.
This is one passage:
"Lane Kiffin did not give Brice a fair chance … no, he did not give him a fair chance at all,” [Bobby] Butler said.
“You take a kid who is a starter, then the next thing you know you put a kid who has only been [in college practice] for 10 days and start him in front of [Butler]. They didn’t even play the same [wide receiver positions].
“But it’s all good. It wasn’t meant to be at USC under Lane Kiffin, so he needs to go to a place that is right for him. We’re just going to keep moving forward, and everything is going to work out for Brice.”
