Lane Kiffin replaces Charlie Partridge who was 3-9 each of the last 3 seasons at Florida Atlantic who is 76-115 all-time in college football which they began 2001. That’s a .398 all-time winning percentage for Florida Atlantic. He was going to coach the NC Game Monday night against Clemson as Nick Saban’s OC since 2014 when Nick extended a lifeline to the never going to grow-up Lane Kiffin. The story of Lane Kiffin is as bad a story as you will ever hear. His firing by Nick Saban on the eve of the NC Game is just the latest in a sordid career where he is now relegated to this fate at FAU. It’s like the job Mike Bobo took out there at Colorado State 507-554-33 except that Lane Kiffin WAS head coach in the NFL vols and Southern California before rendering himself unhirable. To thank Nick Saban before his last game at Alabama Lane Kiffin took a Sports Illustrated guy on his house-hunting trip calling his 3 years there with Nick Saban 3 dog years which in people’s years would be 21. “I’m imaginative a visionary and everything no one else is in the staff room at Alabama and I’m living in Tuscaloosa.” What are your happy moments at Alabama the press asked him at the press conference here in Atlanta for last week’s win over Washington ? “I don’t have any happy moments at Alabama.” So the team bus left him AGAIN and they went back to Tuscaloosa without him and fired him for it.
Of course we all recall here at Georgia how the vols’ fans all crawled all up his ass when he left in the middle of the night there to be the head coach at Southern California only to be fire…
