would be a great hire for the Aggies, have always thought he was a top DC like Aranda. But, if I were him, I would stay at Ole Miss. I think Kiffen will have more success there than Jimbo will have at TAMU... Really all depends on how good that Haynes King kid is. Ive heard he is the real deal and that Max wont be able to beat him out, but it also doesnt make sense that Max transferred there without believing he would start so. guess we will see. I was hoping Brian Kelly would nab him though. I think you need a DC that can run multiple Defenses, I strongly believe (as I did when Aranda was hired) that you need to have a 3/4 defense to defend the spread offense. Its why everyone in the NFL runs it and its so coveted. The days of the 4 down lineman are gone. Its a numbers game now.

Will Kiffen stay at Ole Miss is the relevant question. HIs past suggests he will bail soon enough.

A&M is a quitter program so not a better job.

Welcome to the NFL, where players earn more salary than the coaches.

I thought targeting was not allowed in the SEC.
