Well, this ought to be entertaining.
On Tuesday, UGA announced that Lane Kiffin will be a keynote speaker at the UGA Coaches Clinic.
The event will be from March 28-30 at UGA, and unfortunately it’s only open to football coaches, including those at the high-school level – and not the general public.
Another headliner for the event is Doug Pederson, coach of the Philadelphia Eagles.
It’s a bummer there probably won’t be any media access because there’s no telling what the free-wheeling Kiffin would say. You can guarantee he’ll be entertaining.
If you remember, and I know this memory was brief – Kiffin, 33 years old at the time, was the head coach of one of UGA’s main rivals for one season. Kiffin coached the Tennessee Volunteers for the 2009 season – with former UGA assistant Jim Chaney as his offensive coordinator.
That year, Tennessee posted a 7-6 record, including a 45-17 home win over UGA. It’s doubtful that Kiffin will talk much about that at the UGA Coaches Clinic.
It’s a safe bet that Kiffin will throw a few fun jabs at Nick Saban, his former boss at Alabama. Kiffin was the team’s offensive coordinator from 2014 to 2016, before leaving for his current job at Florida Atlantic’s head coach.
