Saban taps Kiffin as Alabama's new OC/QB coach

Alabama's search for a new offensive coordinator came to an end Friday afternoon when former Tennessee and USC head coach Lane Kiffin accepted the position to join Nick Saban's staff.

Kiffin, as noted in the tweet below, will be in charge of the offense as well as coaching the UA quarterbacks. Upon making his return to the SEC, Kiffin's primary task in Tuscaloosa will be to maximize the Crimson Tide offense for 2014 and beyond.
Despised by many college football fans around the nation, yet respected by many of his peers in the coaching circle, Kiffin will be greeted at Alabama by an abundance of talent, as well as several confident and determined quarterbacks who will be eager to fill the vacancy left by AJ McCarron.

Noted for his track record as a solid offensive coordinator, especially during the majority of his tenure at USC, Kiffin will become the fourth OC Nick Saban has hired since he arrived in Tuscaloosa in early 2007.
Saban, in a statement released Friday afternoon, described the 38-year-old Kiffin as an "outstanding and creative offensive coach."

While financial figures have yet to be confirmed, Kiffin has agreed to a three-year contract.
