Lane Kiffin set to interview at Alabama, Crimson Tide fans react on Twitter

The Internet is not safe anymore, and neither is the coaching carousel, which is in full swing around the country.

With the news that Michigan hired Alabama offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier away from the Crimson Tide, Nick Saban will be looking for a new coordinator.

The names of several candidates are being thrown around, and among them is the one and only Lane Kiffin. Remember, Saban hired Kiffin to be an offensive consultant to help evaluate the offense during bowl season, and he has a respect level for the former Tennessee and USC head coach.

Several poked fun at the notion that Kiffin was helping the Tide revive their offense during bowl practice, and Saban couldn’t understand why.

“Lane is a really good offensive coach and I have a tremendous amount of respect for him,” Saban said via

Aside from it just being ‘Lane Kiffin’, he’s a great recruiter, and his offenses set records at USC. Hey may not be a good head coach, but that doesn’t mean he can’t be a real asset as the Tide’s offensive coordinator.

UPDATED: CBS Sports reports that Kiffin will interview for the Alabama OC position this week and as early as today.
