Friday night, Alabama made it official, announcing that it’d hired former USC coach Lane Kiffin to become its next offensive coordinator. While reaction from players has thus far been positive, college football fans on social media are having a field day making jokes about Kiffin’s hiring.
Here’s the best of what we’ve seen out there – some of these are amazing.
Oh, the irony. Alshon Jeffery is in the Pro Bowl and Lane Kiffin is pumping Nick Saban’s gas.
