Nick Saban opens up about Lane Kiffin job rumors

Saban said what?

With Alabama's latest win over Florida, the rumors will really start flying about where offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin will end up next. There's going to be plenty of dead time between now and Alabama's first Playoff game so head coach Nick Saban might be taking a preemptive step by addressing the Kiffin coaching rumors.

That's pretty chivalrous of Saban and surprisingly candid considering all of the coach talk he gives the media after every football game and during the week. Kiffin is rumored to be choosing between the Houston head coach opening and the LSU offensive coordinator opening.

It's also been reported that Saban is actually helping him try to get another job and with Kiffin's contract running up in February it doesn't hurt to have a plan in place for when he can officially leave Tuscaloosa.
