Trouble follows Kiffin
Placeholder Image
Lane Kiffin must have all the warmth and friendliness of a stomach virus.The coach who still triggers the gag reflex for Vol fans for his one-and-done season in Knoxville is making headlines yet again, this time for his departure from the Alabama coaching staff just days before the national championship game.Turbulence is nothing new for Kiffin, who somehow manages to keep landing coaching jobs. In his first major head coaching gig, Kiffin, at age 31, guided the Oakland Raiders to a forgettable 5-15 record. He was fired four games into his second season, with Raiders owner Al Davis referring to Kiffin as a conman in a deliberately high-profile termination.From there, Kiffin found his way to Rocky Top and led the Vols to a 7-6 record.
