Lane Kiffin was passed over for the Houston job, may miss out on the USF gig, but third time may be a charm for the Alabama offensive coordinator with Florida Atlantic, per Football Scoop.

Kiffin has had previous stops with the Oakland Raiders, University of Tennessee and USC. He’s helped lead Alabama to three SEC titles and one national championship.

Kiffin is reportedly the top contender for the LSU offensive coordinator gig, where he is expected to draw a whopping $5 million annually, per the report. Football Scoop notes FAU’s former coach made just $600,000 per year before he was canned.

If he does accept the gig, it’s unknown if he’ll coach Alabama through the College Football Playoffs.
