Former OC Doug Nussmeier left for Michigan two days ago, and Kiffin interviewed for the job yesterday. Kiffin evaluated Saban’s offense before the Sugar Bowl.

Along with coordinating the offense, Kiffin will also be the new quarterbacks coach. He has been out of work since USC fired him in September.

  1. We were getting the recruits without him, maybe Kiffin can turn the offense up and get 20 more offensive plays a game. I don’t want to see Alabama get away from a powerful run game and start flinging it everywhere, but I would like to see the offense pick up the pace. Imagine what the other teams will fill like come the 4th quarter.

  2. This should add some spice to the third saturday in october… not that it needed it.

  3. Looking forward to greeting him in Knoxville on Oct. 25. Wouldn’t wish him on my worst enemy in the SEC. #volforlife
