Dan Wolken of USA TODAY Sports recently published an article this week suggesting eight potential landing spots for Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin next year.
quote:Many believe that Kiffin will be leaving Alabama after this season to take over a head coaching job. What's your thoughts?
West Virginia: “Shane Lyons, who took over as athletics director last year, came from Alabama where he worked closely with the football program.”
Arizona: “Rich Rodriguez was considered damaged goods when athletics director Greg Byrne hired him, so there’s a history of rolling the dice on big names.”
N.C. State: “It still seems unlikely the Wolfpack will make a change, but Dave Doeren is 6-18 in the ACC and if things continue to go south, who knows?”
Kentucky: “Nobody is going to be a bigger rock star in Lexington than John Calipari, but Kiffin might give him a run for his money.”
Houston: “If Tom Herman left, the school would undoubtedly want to think big and bold given the recent success and financial resources that have been poured into the football program.”
San Diego State: “Rocky Long is going stronger than ever, but he turns 67 in January and there have been retirement whispers.”
Fresno State: “It’s a little-known fact that Kiffin graduated from Fresno State in 1996 and started his coaching career there.”
Auburn: “No way, right?”
