Here’s a nugget from Lane Kiffin’s media tour in Connecticut. According to this USA Today story, he will keep calling plays this season.
From the article: “One change Kiffin considered but declined to execute was relinquishing play-calling duties amid criticism that his offense had leaned too heavily toward the pass during the season’s final month.
“I thought about it, just because I thought about everything,” Kiffin said. “I tinkered with some things toward the end of the year and stuff. But when I went back to it, I just put everything together and said, well, do you need to manage the team more and not call plays, and then you’re around more? And then I went back to, that’s perception and that happens with losing.”
