Ever the social media scamp, Lane Kiffin is busting the chops — or a body part further south — of his former boss. Again.
During last week’s College Football Playoff semifinal against Clemson, Nick Saban was caught on camera very visibly upset at Alabama offensive coordinator Brian Daboll after a particular play call. Sunday, ahead of the national championship game against Georgia Monday night, Saban addressed the contention that he’s rough on his assistants.
“I don’t yell at my assistants very much at all, I don’t think,” said Saban. “But there are occasions where you get upset with, whether it’s a circumstance in the game or a situation in the game, or maybe you did something that’s sort of out of the plan, and you get a little upset about it.”
Our Bryan Fischer wrote that “[s]omething says FAU head coach Lane Kiffin is having a good chuckle over Saban’s answers on this subject.” Not long after, the former Crimson Tide offensive coordinator, who famously took Saban’s rat poison proclamation and ran with it, used this as yet another opportunity to tweak the future Hall of Famer — even busting out a Pinocchio emoji as an exclamation point.
Priceless, especially coming from someone who was on the receiving end of Saban’s ass-chewings for three years.
