Report: Lane Kiffin close to landing a head coaching job
Where in the world will Lane Kiffin be coaching next season?
No one quite knows the answer to this question. The Alabama offensive coordinator has been the focus of many coaching rumors.
It will be fascinating to see how this entire situation plays itself out. Kiffin is still (presumably) coaching the Crimson Tide in the College Football Playoff versus Washington on Dec. 31.
LSU and Ed Orgeron would love to hire him to build their new offensive system. Oregon and USF are also rumored as potential destinations.
According to 247Sports, Kiffin’s ultimate spot could be in the Southwest:
From what I'm hearing, I expect Lane Kiffin to ultimately get the Houston job.

Houston appears to be a good spot for the former USC head coach. There’s fertile recruiting soils to dig from, and the team (courtesy of Tom Herman) appears to be set up for longterm success.
