Alabama offensive coordinator Brian Daboll is leaving Nick Saban’s staff to take the same position with the Buffalo Bills, and Lane Kiffin took the opportunity to take a shot at his former boss.
Daboll’s departure means Alabama will have its fourth offensive coordinator since Dec. 31 of 2016. Kiffin left before the 2017 championship game against Clemson, Steve Sarkisian left to join the Atlanta Falcons after the title game, and now Daboll is leaving.
Kiffin took to Twitter to tweet and retweet shots at Saban.
The two retweets from Kiffin’s account:
Kiffin’s tweets are funny, but they’re ignoring the fact that Saban just won a title with Daboll as OC, and the Tide will almost certainly be back in the mix next year regardless of who is calling the plays.
Kiffin had a successful season this year as the head coach at Florida Atlantic as he guided the team to an 11-3 record and a Conference USA title.
Saban has the difficult task of replacing both coordinators as defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt left to take over as the head coach at Tennessee. But as long as Saban is in charge, Alabama will be a championship contender. And as long as Lane Kiffin is on Twitter, he’ll continue to make jokes about his former boss.
