Lane Kiffin to Alabama Rumors Not Sitting Well With Some Fans
On Thursday morning, Joe Schad of ESPN reported that former USC (and Oakland Raiders… and Tennessee) head coach Lane Kiffin would be interviewing for the recently vacated offensive coordinator job at Alabama. Kiffin, who many regard as one of the top recruiters in the country, advised the Crimson Tide prior to their Sugar Bowl appearance against Oklahoma. And that game, well, it didn’t go so well for Bama.
Suffice to say, based on early Twitter reactions, some Alabama fans are not too pleased with the prospect of hiring ex-Trojan coach:
If Alabama hires Lane Kiffin, it will mean an hour long, obscenity-filled conversation with my dad. Those are only fun for the first 20 min.

If Nick Saban Hires Lane Kiffin, he may as well rip off his Alabama polo to reveal the nWo black t-shirt underneath.
