Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin has been linked to a few different potential head coaching jobs available this offseason. Fresno State, Houston, Georgia Tech, Texas and LSU are all places that were thought to be potential openings for him, but one of those has just closed up according to Football Scoop.
Former California coach Jeff Tedford is closing in on a deal with Fresno State and could have a deal if things go well in the next 24 hours. Tedford was Cal’s coach from 2002 to 2012 and was brought on by Chris Petersen at Washington as an offensive consultant this season.
Tedford has history with Fresno State as well having served as the QB coach and offensive coordinator from 1992 to 1997. This means that there’s one less place Lane Kiffin could end up though by the time the season ends and may have more limited options than anticipated if Tom Herman doesn’t end up leaving Houston.
