Lane Kiffin's tradition of signaling a TD mid-play continues at FAU

Lane Kiffin's tradition of signaling a TD mid-play continues at FAU

He joined Alabama as the offensive coordinator in 2014 and helped the Crimson Tide reach the last two national championship games.

We saw during his time at Alabama that Kiffin sometimes had a habit of celebrating touchdowns a little early.

In an interview with the Washington Post, Kiffin said, "It's no disrespect to Steve". It's the 42-year-old's first head coaching job since the infamous tarmac firing at USC four years ago but already his third attempt overall (Tennessee, 2009). You've been there for the quarterback (Jalen Hurts). Alabama gets beat in the national championship game after Kiffin had been rocking with them all year, and he just rubs it in Saban's face for removing him. You were undefeated together.

Lane Kiffin's first game as the head coach at Florida Atlantic started out well enough Friday night. "Again, if it had been 14 points either way ... when it's one play here or there, you think if those guys had the person they were used to, it would have made a difference". You have that relationship with them and not with us.' I really hadn't thought about the individual players caring about the head coach's attention. You feel like, OK, it's different.

The Midshipmen are coming off a nine-win season and have been to a bowl game in five straight seasons. "I like his feet in the box - just a real smooth runner with great balance".

Waiting wasn't even close to the hardest part for FAU, which struggled to move the ball under Kiffin and offensive coordinator Kendal Briles, who was calling the plays.

Kiffin's ouster for the title game came following a lackluster offensive outing in the semifinal against Washington and some inflammatory comments Kiffin made about Saban to Sports Illustrated.

Kiffin regularly chafed at Saban's sideline demeanor (and seemingly demeaning outbursts), and he accepted the FAU job prior to the playoff, but it was still surprising to see him be jettisoned him prior to the biggest game of the Tide's season.
