According to Albert Breer of TheMMQB.com, people around the NFL have taken note of the job Alabama OC Lane Kiffin has done in recent years and he could end up being an offensive coordinator candidate after the season.
“I think he’d instantly upgrade an NFL offense, he’s arguably one of the best offensive minds in the game,” one area scout tells Breer. “He’s able to adapt in terms of personnel. The offense this year is completely different in style and play-calling than it was last year with [Derrick] Henry.”
Breer says that if Kiffin doesn’t land at LSU, he expects him get at least a few calls from NFL teams.
Kiffin, 41, was hired as the Oakland Raiders head coach back in 2007. He was fired just four weeks into his second year and led the team to a record of 5-15 (25 percent). Since then, Kiffin has coached at Tennessee and USC before joining Alabama as their offensive coordinator a few years ago.
