Interesting...Man, it sure sounds like Kiffin was a complete dumpster fire at bama and somehow they kept it under some control lol...
Lane Kiffin finds a new way to show he hasn't grown up in latest early exit - CBSSports.com
I wonder now if Lane suffers from some sort of disorder?.Interesting...
More coming about about how Kiffin was on the phone with recruits, working on his staff, talking to real estate agents, utilizing alabama staff and resources for his new gig... all unprofessional and typical Lane Kiffin antics.
He's just a J-Hole.
I'm not really going to defend Saban, but I think the reports of his demise in the NFL are greatly exaggerated. He wasn't good. But he managed 9-7 his first year, then 6-10 the next. 15-17. That's better than what the Saints have seen in any two year stretch recently, and that 2nd year was with a gimpy Culpepper, Joey Harrington, and Cleo Lemon at QB. If he had Brees that season instead of the Saints, maybe it's a different story for both franchises.Not sure what I was watching but it was a good piece on these guys that have success in college but fail in the pro's. chip kelly, saban etc were the main thrust.
With kelly it was about his fast paced offense and how the nfl restricts its effectivness with the network pace. Too many breaks.
With saban they said he is insufferable to be around and players, coaches etc can only stand it for so long so college works for him as players are only around 3-4 yrs and coaches only last 2-4 yrs with him. Kiffin was destined to be gone and they were amazed he stayed this long. He is evidently very narcissistic and is not the type to fall in line which saban demands. The fact that he ended up at fla atlantic after this many years means the situation had to be unbearable. He had to take whatever he could get. Staying at bama was probably not an option under any circumstances.
I too am glad we didn't hire him. He would have stabbed orgeron in the back.
