Lane Kiffin Thanks Nick Saban During His Introduction as FAU’s New Head Coach
Florida Atlantic introduced Bama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin as their new head football coach on Tuesday.
And during the press conference, Kiffin was quick to thank Tide coach Nick Saban for hiring him three years ago, after Kiffin was fired as USC’s head man.
Said Kiffin:”I’m very grateful to Coach Saban. My phone was not ringing very much at the time after USC. That was a very humbling experience. Coach Saban and I have had a great relationship regardless of what people may think. As he says, I get my ass-chewings from time-to-time. I’ve learned to except those. (chuckles) So it has been a great run.”
