CBS Sports reports today the former Oakland Raider, Tennessee Volunteer, and USC Trojan head coach Lane Kiffin is about to interview for the offensive coordinator job at Alabama. During Kiffin's various tenures in the NFL and NCAA as a head coach, he has developed a not so pleasant reputation as man with a lot of baggage. Fans of every program he has been at the helm of would be more than happy to tell you how much dislike and distrust they have for him. That said, he also has the reputation of being a decent offensive minded coach and a great recruiter. But does that make him a good fit for Alabama? They certainly need some offensive help after the 2013 season, but I'm just not sure that Alabama needs his kind of help. Especially when you consider the baggage he brings with him and his history in the Southeastern Conference. Time will tell though. Personally, I would love to see him get the job. It would add another interesting angle to future Tennessee - Alabama matchups. Plus, it would give those Tennessee fans who still have a chip on their shoulders plenty of opportunity to vent some of the pent up venom they have carrying around for the last four years. Spring practice isn't that far off and it will certainly be interesting to see if Kiffin's path of NCAA destruction continues through Tuscaloosa or if he actually makes a real contribution to the Crimson Tide program. Interesting indeed.
Til Next Time........Cheers!
