Lane Kiffin responds to Jimbo Fisher-Nick Saban feud: 'Speechless for the first time in my life'
Lane Kiffin hasn’t been shy about poking the big-name coaches in college football (and the SEC, in particular) when needed.
He’s taken playful jabs at his former boss, Nick Saban. He’s also shared his thoughts on NIL and how it may have helped Texas A&M land an elite 2022 recruiting class (though the Aggies and Jimbo Fisher vehemently deny that it did).
On Thursday, Fisher went scorched-earth on Saban, calling him a narcissist and saying their relationship is over. College football insider Bruce Feldman asked for Kiffin’s thoughts on the beef between the 2 title-winning coaches.
As you can see below, Kiffin had a perfect response, saying he was speechless for the first time in his life:

It appears Kiffin was watching Fisher’s press conference live, too:

Like the rest of us, Kiffin will have his popcorn ready for the Aggies’ game in Tuscaloosa on Oct. 8:
