Saban: Kiffin leaving Alabama, going to FAU
BOCA RATON, FLA. | Lane Kiffin is about to be a head coach again, after agreeing Monday to start anew and take over at Florida Atlantic.
Kiffin’s soon-to-be-former boss, Alabama coach Nick Saban, confirmed the hiring and said his offensive coordinator will remain with the Crimson Tide for the College Football Playoff.
FAU had no immediate comment because the deal has not been finalized. Kiffin has agreed to a five-year contract, a person with direct knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because neither Kiffin nor the school had confirmed the hiring.
