Nick Saban On Lane Kiffin’s Limited Role At Alabama


Nick Saban made his first live comments about Lane Kiffin today in a brief interview with Dennis Dodd of CBS

“I’ve known him for a long time,” Saban said. “I always thought he was a really good coach. All his issues come from something we’re not asking him to do.”

Saban is right. Kiffin won’t have to run a program or lead a team. And he won’t have to speak to the media.

No more issues!

    “Limited”??? What an @$$h o l e

    • TrojanFan3.0

      “Limited” would be a good word to describe wolf

      • Joe Blow

        How true!

  • FightON

    He also won’t have to talk to Scotty. He’s got 99 problems and a Wolf ain’t one.

    But, in all seriousness, one of his issues was calling the plays. So, you know.

    You’re suffering from separation anxiety! Relax and don’t try so hard, we get it!

    • Joe Blow

      West Holly told Scotty to stay away.

    Oddly candid comments on a coaching hire, but may be a good thing for Kiffin.

    I always thought he would do very well in a limited coaching capacity (coordinator instead of head man), and now we’ll see if that’s true.

    Will we bring in Joe Salave’a- Washington State Defensive Line Coach ?

  • jetman624

    In all seriousness, he will probably do a fine job there and will likely be competing with us for some of the “pro style” offense type recruits.

    • Hey SUCLA sucks it!

      Agreed and hope so.

    • Ben Factor

      Plus one.

      Moreover, if Kiffin has gained a little humility, he will be able to learn a LOT about being a successful head coach.

      Sexton, the agent for Saban AND Kiffin, has engineered a strategic win-win for both men.

      Now, Scott, let’s move on, once and for all. Who’s going to coach the DL?

      • Joe Blow

        Maybe Scott should get an agent other than bucket.

  • ScottWolfSniffsHisOwnFarts

    No more issues.

    AD Gargamel can’t say the same.

    Oh look everyone.. ANOTHER LAME KIFFIN POST…
