Nov. 30 (Bloomberg) -- University of Southern California assistant Monte Kiffin will resign following the Trojans’ bowl game, stepping down from the team coached by his son following a 7-5 season.

Kiffin, a 72-year-old with 47 years of coaching experience in the college and pro ranks, is leaving to pursue opportunities in the National Football League, the school said yesterday on its website.

“I wanted to make this announcement now so that our players who are preparing for the bowl game and our recruits who will be visiting campus are aware,” Kiffin said in a statement posted yesterday on the Los Angeles school’s website.

USC lost four of its last five games after entering the season ranked third in the coaches’ poll.

Kiffin spent 26 years coaching defense in the NFL, including 13 as the defensive coordinator of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He’s been USC’s assistant head coach since 2010 after following his son, Lane, from the University of Tennessee.
