Lane Kiffin Giving Advice To Alabama Coach Nick Saban

KIFFIN.MENUFormer USC coach Lane Kiffin will visit Alabama coach Nick Saban to offer advice on the Crimson Tide’s offense, according to ESPN. What does Saban need help on? Staring at the play sheet more? Keeping your best player off the field on fourth-and-2 (Reggie Bush v. Texas)? Wearing a visor?

    I’m with you on this one Wolfie. I can’t for the life of me understand how Kiffin could possibly help Saban. I think they are friends and Saban is just trying to keep Kiffin from disappearing from the scene.

    Scottie — you are the best! Keep up the great journalism!

    Lane is going to recommend Monte, who will soon be available.

    Lane should give advice to Wolf about journalism.

    It would be smarter for Saban to talk to Baxter about Special Teams and how to tackle after a missed FG.

    Saban must be so tired of the pressure that he is going to pull a “Producers”-style move and start making the most outrageous decisions imaginable.

    Kiffin never ceases to amaze…

  • B.Miller

    One Word to describe this whole scenario…

    WEIRD!

  • Isaiahdolan

    This has to be a joke…Perhaps he really wants to coach Texas and this move will get Bama to let him go..

  • Arturo

    It is what makes Saban, Saban…

  • Kelphus

    Wolf, come on man. The guy was fired in a very embarrassing way, and you’re STILL taking shots? Is there any pride left in that nebbish body of yours or are you like that little kid in school who likes to hide behind a corner and throw spitwads and then run when somebody sees you?

  • Ben Factor

    What’s the big deal?

    Nick Saban is relentless about incremental improvement. He has stated that he is thinking about the new direction of college offenses and what it means for Alabama. How can it hurt to be critiqued by and exchange ideas with someone of Kiffin’s experience? Kiffin will either make helpful observations, or he won’t. Saban will take what he thinks is useful. That’s who he is.
