A gutsy play-caller who isn’t afraid to spar with other coaches, the former Fresno St. quarterback teamed up with Nick Saban at Alabama in Jan. 2014 in hopes of bringing a faster tempo to the Crimson Tide’s offense. Kiffin spent six seasons on Pete Carroll’s staff at Southern California before becoming a first-year head coach in 2007 with the Oakland Raiders — the NFL’s youngest head coach in the modern era (31).
When Kiffin’s NFL coaching career soon fizzled, he inherited Phillip Fulmer’s mess in Knoxville as Tennessee’s head coach in 2008 and paced the Vols to a second-place finish in the SEC East. That’s when USC came calling about its head coach opening following Carroll’s departure to the Seattle Seahawks. In three seasons, Kiffin’s Trojans won 25 games, but it wasn’t enough to appease athletic director Pat Haden after a 7-6 finish in 2012.
