Browne reflects on Kiffin's termination

USC quarterback Max Browne talks about his relationship with now former USC head coach Lane Kiffin who recruited Browne to the Trojans.

The new USC regime under interim head coach Ed Orgeron kicked off on Wednesday and the changes were instantly apparent. Members of the media were welcomed into practice, Orgeron read an injury update and players said the energy was higher.

Although Lane Kiffin is no longer head coach of the Trojans, a handful of players like Max Browne say they'll miss their former head coach.

"I think we all respect Coach Kiff and still wish he was here," said Browne after practice Wednesday. "Obviously, we all play a part in what happened last Sunday."

Browne, who was recruited by Kiffin, was one of a few players to seemingly defend Kiffin on Twitter following his firing on Sunday morning.

Although Browne says Kiffin was "the reason [he] came here," he said he wanted to commit to the school not the coach.

"I've only been here for nine months, and obviously Kiff's the reason I came here but I also felt like during the recruiting process, one of the first tips someone gave me was don't commit on the coach, commit on the school," said Browne. "So I came in with the mindset that there's a possibility that he could get fired, he could get another job, he could go to the NFL. With that mindset you hope he stays all three, four, five years. We still got [quarterbacks] coach [Clay] Helton, [receivers] coach [Tee] Martin, Coach Orgeron, those guys that recruited me here, so I'm happy."

With Orgeron now leading the team, what's the biggest difference?

"More energy," said Browne. "But that's Coach O. Going out there having more fun, having the mindset that we're playing for each other. Obviously it's not the start we wanted, but we still got a lot of big rivalry games. Still a lot to prove. I think that's the mindset, play for each other and have fun."

In Sunday's press conference, Orgeron said he wanted to bring back the "fun and joy" in football. While that has started as small as bringing back desserts to the buffet line for the team, Browne says it's providing them with a fresh start.

"If guys have been playing tense, it's a new beginning for everyone," said Browne. "[We're] just trying to take advantage of it."

Browne went on to say that he agreed Trojan football under Kiffin was intense, but said that it was a necessary trait for him.

"He needed to be. Coming off what happened in 2009 with the sanctions, he was forced, any coach would be forced to put the hammer down," said Browne. "That was his coaching style, but he proved that it worked with the 10-2 season. Unfortunately the past two seasons it didn't work out the way that we hoped."

Orgeron is set to lead the Trojans for the last eight games of the season before a new head coach is scheduled to take over. A handful of names are already circulating in the rumor mill, but Browne says the team hasn't started to think that far into the future yet.

"To be honest we haven't. It's only been a week, but I think the rest of the season we're excited for what can happen," said Browne. "And a lot of guys in my class are playing and contributing, so they're excited to see what the next eight weeks and beyond holds for us."

For now, Browne says the Trojans will take advantage of their bye week to continue to improve and get back to work before they face off against Arizona next Thursday.

"Getting back to work and taking this bye week to regroup, assess the good and the bad and move forward," said Browne. "I think we all know what we have ahead of us with both rivalry games, a Thursday night game, the first one in the Coliseum, there's a lot to still play for.

"I would say be more consistent on all cylinders," said Browne in regard to what USC needs to focus on this week. "It was the defense that was real consistent and lately it's been the special teams and offense that's been picking it up, so all three phases of the game has to bring it together and making sure they're where they need to be.
