Lane Kiffin Offered the Tennessee Job, Multiple Sources Report

Will SheltonSenior Analyst INovember 26, 2008

MrSEC.com, reported by John Pennington, is saying this afternoon that ex-Raiders head coach Lane Kiffin has been offered the head coaching job at Tennessee. This certainly goes along with all the chatter I've heard just about everywhere for the last 72 hours.

Tennessee site Third Saturday in Blogtober, who broke the news of Fulmer's removal six days before it happened, is also reporting that Kiffin has been offered.

If true, Kiffin is a hire who will bring with him questions and names like Ed Orgeron and Monte Kiffin, Lane's father, who's currently at Tampa Bay.

Most believe the validity of this report, but I'm sure Tennessee has been/is working very hard to make the rest of this week about Phillip Fulmer, and deservedly so, while also having someone in place bright and early Monday morning to get this recruiting class back under control, and to move the program forward as soon as possible.

So you still may not hear anything official until Monday, and I hope nothing takes away from Fulmer on Saturday.

But right now, this appears to be the direction we're moving in at Tennessee.
