Lane Kiffin added a national championship to his resume on Monday night as Alabama held on for a 45-40 victory over Clemson in the 2016 College Football Playoff National Championship.

However, not everything went so smoothly for him that night.

After the game, the Crimson Tide team buses apparently left the University of Phoenix Stadium without conducting a head count. As a result, the 40-year-old offensive coordinator got left behind while he was talking to reporters.


Kiffin at least had a sense of humor about the situation.

"First, I get fired [by USC] on the tarmac, and now I get left behind at the national championship," Kiffin said "half-jokingly," according to Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman.

There were a lot of people to account for, and this was no ordinary environment, so one could understand how something like this might happen, given the circumstances. Fortunately, it appears as though Kiffin and his kids eventually got a ride.

Kiffin luckily had no problem making it in time for the flight back to Tuscaloosa:
