What does Snoop Lion (formerly Snoop Dogg) have in common with Lane Kiffin (formerly USC's head football coach)? One very important potential USC recruit: Snoop's son Cordell Broadus, who's making headlines in the sports world before he's even graduated high school.

The 16-year-old high school junior, a rising football star who has been ranked as the sixth best wide receiver in California in the class of 2015, didn't mince words following Kiffin's abrupt dismissal on Sunday, Sept. 29, telling that he felt the change was long overdue.

"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," he told the site.

Broadus, who stands tall at 6-foot-2 and weighs in at 185 pounds, has also received offers from LSU, Nebraska, and USC rivals Berkeley and UCLA. Kiffin's firing could steer him toward his rapper father's preferred college team, however.

Snoop has been a longtime Trojans fan, having attended numerous games and even practices in the past.

On Sunday, Kiffin, who has been USC's head coach for the past four years, was unceremoniously fired upon the team's return to Los Angeles after yet another loss, this time 62-41 to Arizona State. 

According to the university, Kiffin was pulled off the team bus at the airport terminal on Sunday, and the driver was instructed to return to campus without him.
