About Lane Kiffin in brief
Lane Monte Kiffin is an American football coach who is currently the head football coach at the University of Mississippi. Kiffin formerly served as the offensive coordinator for the USC Trojans football team from 2005 to 2006. He was also the head coach of the Oakland Raiders from 2007 to 2008. He is the son of longtime NFL defensive coordinator Monte K Griffin. K Griffin is also the former offensive coordinator at the Alabama Crimson Tide from 2014 until 2016, when he was hired at Florida Atlantic. In 2009, he was the youngest head coach in modern NFL history at the time when he joined the Steelers’ Mike Tomlin as the youngest coach since the AFL–NFL merger in 1970. In 2007, Kiffin vehemently opposed the selection of LSU quarterback JaMarcus Russell in the 2007 NFL Draft, who would be regarded as one of the biggest busts in NFL history. In 2010, the NCAA retroactively declared Reggie Bush ineligible for the entire 2005 season, and forced USC to vacate all of its 2005 wins. In 2011, he helped guide USC to a 23–3 record during his tenure as offensive coordinator, an 88. 5% win percentage. In 2012, he led the Trojos to a win over the then #3 ranked University of Michigan in the Rose Bowl. In 2013, he took over the Tennessee Volunteers as head coach and led the team to a 9-3 record. In 2014, he became the offensive coach at Alabama, leading the Crimson Tide to a 10-2 season. In 2015, he guided the Alabama team to an 11-2 record, the best in college football.
In 2016, he also led the Alabama program to a 12-1 record, including a 7-0 record in the Southeastern Conference (SEC) season. He has been married to his wife, Tricia, since 2011. He also has a son, Lane K Griffin, who was a tight ends coach for the Jacksonville Jaguars of the NFL for one year before joining the USC coaching staff. In 2008, he worked as a graduate assistant for the Colorado State University Rams. He worked as the wide receivers coach at Colorado State for a year before becoming the wide receiver coach at USC for two years. In 2004, he added the duties of passing game coordinator, and he was promoted to offensive coordinator along with Steve Sarkisian for the 2005 season after Norm Chow left USC for the same position with the NFL’s Tennessee Titans. In addition to his duties as recruiting coordinator, K Griffin continued as the recruiting coordinator that year. In 2005 USC offense produced numerous school records, averaging 49. 1 points and 579 yards per game and becoming the first in NCAA history to have a 3,000-yard passer, two 1,000 yard rushers, and a 1-000 yard receiver. Steve Smith fell a few yards short of also surpassing 1,,000 yards in receiving. In 2006, the team finished first in the Pac-10 in passing efficiency by averaging 142. 8 passer rating, and produced two, 1, thousand-yard receivers – Dwayne Jarrett and Steve Smith – and a 3,.000- yard passer John David Booty, with 3,347 yards.
