He's never coached a losing team in college .. a winning record every year, every school.. the guy is a winner.. it's about the person...

As far as person and personality, he would be a step up from CBP. CBP won, but he was a jerk to a lot of people.

The recruits would actually love Kiffin.

Hope you were being sarcastic since he's 6-3.  To put this in perspective they went 3-9 for the last 3 years.  So bash him for his attitude, maturity, personality, but don't say he can't win at FAU.

To go further with your point 6 wins is the most they have had since 2008. If he goes 2-1 down the stretch it will tie the most wins in program history since they went DI. 3-0 would be the school record since becoming DI

IMO he will win out.

I would be really excited to have Lane Kiffin as our coach, but I don't think Long will do it.

Excellent interview with Kiffin. I think is shows his personality and self awareness and growth since he was last a HC.

Hopeful, Jeff will actually do his due diligence and give him a solid look.

But yeah I could see Long saying I don’t want to deal with his perception.

Not at the top of my list but I think recruiting would go up, and record would improve.  National media buzz/attention would be more than almost any other candidate we could hire.  His "baggage" is much different than say a Chip Kelley or even a BP.  It comes more from him being a wise ass than anything else.  Would be much more entertaining than what we have now, and let's face it, CFB is all about entertainment.  He might be a controversial hire, but less divisive than say GM, and I'm not saying GM is divisive but the hire might be.

He has an exciting way about him. He will fill the stadium. He would be gunning for Alabama. He does have knowledge of Arkansas.

Lane Kiffin and Mike Norvall are my top 2 for the Arkansas job.

One thing is for sure, Kiffin would get under Saban’s skin quick and it might rattle him a little. At the very least, it would be fun and give us some national spotlight.

This is a reason why I really like the idea.  Great offensive mind, has been a head coach in the SEC, has coached under Saban (inside knowledge and can get under his skin), great pedigree, should have some good Florida recruiting connections (and Cali?).

Not sure about of a lifetime, but he is damaged goods similar to BP.. getting them on the cheap, when nobody wants them.. I think Lane will have several offers after this year...

He, along with Neal Brown, Mike Norvell, Matt Campbell and Mark Stoops are who I'd like Jeff to at least try for... I'd be happy with any of the 5...

Kiffin would be a great hire.  Worst case scenario he brings in recruiting classes like we’ve never seen before.  We’d be bowling each year the next few years and if he couldn’t get above 8 wins by year 4 we can him and move on with the talent he brought in. Should be able to get him relatively cheap and because of his past probably wouldn’t receive a huge buyout figure.  I actually think he’d win here though and wouldn’t need replaced.  And this program could definitely use the national attention he would bring. We hire this man in January and February signing class would look better than anything we’ve brought in for years. 2019 class would be loaded.

I think the offense they are running at FAU is what we need.  Mix between Alabama-style pro and Baylor-style spread.  He now knows what's up in the SEC, has been a head coach at a place in the SEC with huge expectations, AND has been OC under the best coach of our lifetime.  He should have pretty good recruiting ties throughout the south now.  I think he will kill it at his next stop.

New things called buyouts. Prevent coaches from moving. We pay in the top 17 for coaches in the most prestigious conferences. Throw in a SEC non compete and it’s close to 6 jobs better than ours and most of them already have their HC

If he gets it rolling here like CBP it is unlikely he would move. If he didn’t we would still be in a much better position than we are now. The CBP thing killed us because of the time of year he was fired.

With the upgraded facilities, fan base, and being the only "show" in town, I think Lane would crawl to Arkansas.

It would get us on the national radar quick. (and piss off Saban in the process!)

If we hired Kiffin, I would seriously have to reevaluate my feelings about the Razorbacks.  He's a dirtbag and an NCAA investigation waiting to happen.

I'd be good with Norvell.  Folks close to the Memphis program say he's the real deal and has all the markings of a coach with a great future.
