Lane Kiffin is heated, y'all

The blast of offensive coordinator-related Buckshots continues as the curious career of Lane Kiffin has reached its latest chapeter. Despite being a failure in the last three head coaching gigs he's had, Lane Kiffin is in position to become Alabama's next offensive coordinator. From CBS Sports:

Kiffin will visit Tuscaloosa for the interview but won't be alone in the running for the job. A long list of NFL suitors should be involved for a coveted job to replace Doug Nussmeier, who is now Michigan's offensive coordinator.

The 38-year-old Kiffin, who went a combined 35-21 as coach of Tennessee and USC, visited Alabama during bowl prep as a consultant/observer.

Kiffin runs a pro-style offense, which fits with Saban's style of ball control and a physical running game. But Saban has said recently that he's open to upping the tempo to adapt to attack defenses.

Kiffin must be dynamic in the film room or something, but also: can we get a buddy movie centering around the friendship of Nick Saban and Lane Kiffin? Could there be an odder fit for "pals" in college football?
