Lane Kiffin doesn’t get along with many people, and he really doesn’t get along with Nick Saban.
That much was clear after Saban got rid of Kiffin, his offensive coordinator, right before the national championship game. Alabama lost that game, and Saban is probably still fine with his decision.
Here’s a good way to describe their relationship.
Kiffin, now the head coach at Florida Atlantic, didn’t let slip an opportunity to take a shot at his former boss when he was asked if he would manage his assistants the same way Saban did.
“No, that’s not really how I do it. Greg (McElroy) knows about those,” Kiffin said. “Those things come up, and everybody has different ways of dealing with them. It’s just not really how I do it. I’m not really big on humiliating assistant coaches in front of everybody. I write down notes. In the staff meeting, I explain what we want to get done.”
