Friday night, Alabama officially hired former USC head coach Lane Kiffin as its next offensive coordinator. Reaction has been mixed from both the media and fans – some think that coach Nick Saban is the perfect boss for Kiffin, while others aren’t sure why the Tide didn’t evaluate more options. Well, we’ve already got one of Bama’s players commenting on the situation. Soon-to-be senior quarterback Blake Sims, who many expect will be the starter in 2014, has expressed his support via Twitter.
Want to welcome coach lane to the tide will do very well for us this coming up here

It’s certainly a good start for Kiffin, who will need to be on the same page as his players (especially his quarterbacks) in the coming years. We’ll see if the rest of the Tide weigh in on the hiring.
