He’s wearing untucked dress shirts and blazers and is fat as fuck.  This is awesome.  Ole Miss is pinning their hopes on how he’s “matured” when he clearly doesn’t even try anymore.  It’s going to be an even bigger train wreck that his other jobs, except this time with some Sark / drunk Schnellenberger shenanigans to put the cherry on top.

Is this Ole Miss and Kiffin or aggy and Jimbo we’re talking about?

With Lane getting back to the SEC, it gives me hope that "Bert" Bielema will coach again at the college level. And that would be good for the LULZ

Check your sources, I'm pretty sure he was hired back by Arkansas yesterday.

Some of you need to gtf off your high horse. For a school like ole miss he is great hire. For all his flaws as human, he is great offensive mind and will certainly be a giant pain in the ass for Saban, The Ogre and most importantly, jimbo. That alone is worth the price of admission.

I think Surly Nation is underestimating his coaching abilities. Or maybe I’m overestimating them. But I think he’s a pretty good coach but a marginal human

God knows what lies ahead for the Lane Train, but in three seasons at Alabama, he transformed a moribund (shitty) offense into a national contender three times running.  He'll need some help on defense and some serious counseling to keep the debutante belles and hoochie selfie addicts up offa him, and him offa them.  Give him a year and he'll have Ole Miss back where Hugh Freeze did.  Literally.

I for one don't care - bring on the scandals as long as they stay in Mississippi.

^^^Underrated post^^^  Funny as hell podcast moment!!

 

SO MISSISSIPPI... "YOU HATE US CAUSE YAH AIN'T US!!"

At the 30 minute mark says:   Lane is on his 5th Head Coaching job and age 44... "Lane Kiffin is like an aging stripper" and "Ole Miss is like a thrice divorced middle aged Dude who went to Vegas", and they met each other and "have now made their relationship official in front of an Elvis-clad... nuptials"

"Ole Miss has had its last two coaches fired because one had a guy who took a fake dog pee, and the other one had escort services phone numbers on his cellphone!!"

"So Lane is like a stripper named Cinnamon"

Lane Kiffin is reportedly gunning for Nick Saban’s staff members — including the big one

By Zach Barnett -
 December 11, 2019

Lane Kiffin has been Ole Miss’s head coach for three days, and already the Rebels’ hire is paying off in dramatic terms.

According to a report Wednesday from Aaron Suttles of The Athletic — who covers the Crimson Tide as well as anyone — Kiffin is working to bring as many current, former and potential Alabama coaches as he can get his hands on. That list starts with Scott Cochran, whom Suttles reports Kiffin has offered an on-the-field coaching spot in order to get him to leave Tuscaloosa.

Cochran is widely viewed as the most important staff member in Tuscaloosa other than The Man himself, joining Saban’s staff as the strength and conditioning coach in 2007 and remaining in place ever since. In fact, Cochran is the only Alabama staff member still in the same role dating back to Saban’s 2007 hiring outside of Saban. He also makes $595,000 at Alabama, fifth highest among strength coaches in all of college football.

Other coaches on Kiffin’s radar include current secondary coach Karl Scott, former Alabama defensive coordinator Tosh Lupoi and former Alabama defensive line coach Bo Davis. Lupoi spent 2014-18 on Saban’s staff, rising from a defensive analyst to defensive coordinator, and is now the Cleveland Browns’ defensive line coach. Davis deposited multiple stints as Saban’s defensive line coach and now works in the same role with the Detroit Lions.

In addition to hiring ace recruiters with SEC experience, Suttles reports the hirings are driven by a personal animosity Kiffin harbors toward Saban, stemming from his curt dismissal in between the College Football Playoff semifinals and finals in the 2016 season. As Suttles writes:

It’s been nearly three years since Saban unceremoniously fired Kiffin, his offensive coordinator, two days after Alabama beat Washington in the 2016 College Football Playoff semifinal at the Peach Bowl. Saban fired Kiffin a week before the national championship game. Kiffin was embarrassed. Kiffin was angry. Kiffin hasn’t forgotten.

That dismissal fueled Kiffin’s desire to return to the SEC and a burning passion to exact revenge on Saban, multiple people with knowledge of the matter told The Athletic.

The timing here is hilariously ironic, as Wednesday’s bombshell follows the Tuesday night premier of an HBO documentary on the friendship between Saban and Bill Belichick, which includes an exchange where Saban expresses frustration at former assistants who — often having taken SEC jobs — attempt to build their new staffs by pilfering the former boss.

“We’ve always had sort of a mutual respect for how we sort of take each other’s people,” Saban says to Belichick, via AL.com. “It’s one thing that I always try to emphasize to the guys: what I have a tough time with, aight, is we’ve had however many guys who have worked here who are at Georgia, Tennessee — whoever, wherever — is when they get those jobs, and in most cases you’ve helped them, is they have a hard time understanding why they can’t take your people.  “I’m gonna help you get a job, (only) so that you can take what I’ve tried to build here and destroy the continuity of what I have? It’s amazing how some of the assistants don’t understand why that’s not a good thing.”

Cochran isn’t just one of Saban’s “people.” He’s his person, the lone direct line from the beginning of the Crimson Dynasty to today and, in fact, the only coach (again, outside of Saban himself) who deals with the players on a daily basis that hasn’t changed over during the time Alabama’s rising seniors have been on campus. (Suttles’ report does not touch on Cochran’s answer to Kiffin’s reported offer, but from the way it’s written it seems as if Cochran passed.)

That conversation above was recorded last spring, so Saban couldn’t have known at that time Kiffin would return to his life in the form of a division rival trying to poach his most valuable staff member.

But, boy oh boy, I think we can all agree it’s a shame HBO’s cameras didn’t capture his reaction to this Lane Kiffin move.  😂😂😂

Starting to wonder where Baby Briles is headed??

Ole Miss: Lane Kiffin has zeroed in on UCF offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Jeff Lebby for the same post, according to ESPN’s Chris Low. Also, contrary to a report from The Athletic earlier today, Lane has not offered Scott Cochran a job per AL.com, who reports it’s “unlikely” that Cochran or Tosh Lupoi wind up in Oxford.

If Kiffin needs a go-to list of trim to bang in Oxford, I can more than accommodate him by providing a lengthy dossier of some of my post-college triumphs. Hell, I’ll even categorize them by age.

This is encouraging. If becoming Eskimo brothers with our new coach is my call to duty, then so be it. It’s been almost twenty years since I graduated, and I finally get to contribute to the success of my alma mater’s football program. Where do I sign?

So, Briles son in law instead of his son.

Remember that time his employer wouldn't even let him get back in the team bus?  Then some crazy corndog instantly had success with literally the same players?
