It's been the buzz since Doug Nussmeier left for Michigan.
Now it's official.
Lane Kiffin, the former head coach at Tennessee and USC, will be the next offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, the school announced Friday afternoon. ESPN first reported the story that AL.com confirmed.
“We are excited to have Lane join our staff,” Alabama coach Nick Saban said in a statement. “He is an outstanding and creative offensive coach who has great experience both at the college and NFL level. He has a very good understanding of the game and I have always been impressed with what I saw in the games he called."
ESPN reported the deal is for three years, the standard contract length for Alabama coordinators.
