Kiffin denies any knowledge of alleged payment made by Garza

LOS ANGELES (WVLT) -- Southern Cal head coach Lane Kiffin denied knowing anything about an alleged payment made by a former assistant.

When asked about a Yahoo! Sports report that says Willie Mack Garza wired $1,500 to a talent scout to cover the cost of airfare for a former prospect and his mom to fly from Texas to Knoxville, here's how the ex-Tennessee head coach responded:

"All I can say on that is that the alleged incident, I had no knowledge of, or knowledge of a relationship at all. I have always been committed, wherever we've been, to doing things the right way and cooperating with the NCAA so that's all I've got on it."
