Comparing him to Paterino doesn't make since either. Paterino gave up and abandoned Atlanta mid-season to do what? Take more money at ARK. He ran after the money, Kiffin is running after the opportunity.
Because College expects coaches to stick around longer than the Pros. The NFL can more-easily accept coaches leaving for better money since players do it all the time. And, it's not like iffing had been there for years. Kiffin was in Tenn for 1 year. One. Combine that with his history of negative behavior in Tennessee and Oakland, and you can understand how he deservedly is getting dumped on.
