There has been plenty of talk about Lane Kiffin in the last few days with him and Alabama head coach Nick Saban “mutually agreeing” to part ways before the National Championship Game next week. There were people who thought that Saban really kicked him out and there were some who thought Kiffin finally had enough of Saban and his helicoptering.

There are also some who think it’s unfair to the kids who committed to him and one of those guys is former Tennessee defensive end Robert Ayers Jr. He took to Twitter to rip Kiffin a new one for leaving the program right before the national title game.

He makes a good point, but it’s been on record that both coaches made the decision and it was for the players because Kiffin was too distracted with his FAU duties. He does make a good point about players not being able to transfer at will though. Ayers likely would have done that after his first or second year in Knoxville when he didn’t get a lot of playing time. But he stuck with the school and Derek Dooley (for whatever reason) and ended up leading the SEC in tackles for loss in 2008 with 15.5.
