Lane Kiffin (Raiders)Lane Kiffin
is in the news yet again and of course it's not necessarily for all the right reasons. While yes, Kiffin did lead the Alabama Crimson Tide's offense to just about the greatest run in college football history while repairing his image and eventually getting hired as a head coach for Florida Atlantic, he also had yet another falling out -- this time with Nick Saban
and Company. Although all of the information is not out, a head coach usually doesn't relieve his offensive coordinator of his duties a week before the National Championship Game. As for his NFL coaching career, the ex-Raiders coach just couldn't seem to get along with anyone. During the press conference of his firing, the great Al Davis
stated, "I will no longer stand silently by while you continue to hurt this organization... I think he conned me like he conned all you people... I reached a point where I felt that the whole staff were fractionalized, that the best thing to do to get this thing back was to make a change. It hurts because I picked the guy. I picked the wrong guy." Al surely wasn't the kind of man to admit making mistakes, but when a coach sends out a field goal kicker for a 76-yard-attempt, even if it's Sebastian "The Polish Cannon" Janikowski
, the hire was clearly a mistake.
