When asked about new OC Lane Kiffin, Alabama head coach Nick Saban said "so far, so good."
Kiffin has "done a really good job. He's smart, players respond to him well," Saban explained. In the past, Alabama's offense has been very ground focused, using power running plays and throwing play action off of it. It will be interesting to see if Kiffin expands off of that mentality this season. Jul 17 - 1:07 PM

Former USC head coach Lane Kiffin will be Alabama's next offensive coordinator, according to ESPN's Alex Scarborough.

Kiffin and Nick Saban have been friends for some time, and some took Kiffin interviewing for the job as a friendly gesture by the Alabama coach, but it was obviously much more. Saban is known for keeping his offensive coordinators close, in terms of advising them (restricting might be too harsh). Alabama obviously has produced a steady rushing attack in recent years, and that will likely be relied on heavily next season without AJ McCarron. It is also important that assistants under Saban rarely speak to the media during the season.

Former USC head coach Lane Kiffin will interview for Alabama's offensive coordinator opening this week, according to CBS Sports' Jeremy Fowler.

Fowler adds the interview could take place as early as Thursday. "Kiffin will visit Tuscaloosa for the interview but won't be alone for the job. A long list of NFL suitors should be involved for a coveted job to replace Doug Nussmeier," Fowler writes. It would be a fun marriage, but Kiffin would almost certainly have to stick to Nick Saban's plays and scripts.
