Kiffin had long been mentioned as a possible candidate for the job, and it was believed that he would leave Alabama at the conclusion of the current season. (SLIDESHOW: 13 Times Lindsey Vonn Proved She’s One Of The Hottest Women Alive)

If Kiffin accepts the offer, it won’t be the first head coaching position the offensive-minded coach has held. He previously was the head coach at the University of Tennessee and University of Southern California. Kiffin also had a brief stint as the head coach of the Oakland Raiders.
