Does Nussmeier Think Lane Kiffin Is Alabama’s Head Coach In Waiting?


 

The college football world was rocked with the announcement that Lane Kiffin was coming to Tuscaloosa as the new offensive coordinator for the Alabama Crimson Tide. Now it appears that the former signal-caller may think there is more to this hire than meets the eye.


Michael Carvell of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution alludes in the above tweet that the departure of members of the Alabama coaching staff may be related to the Kiffin hire.

While it’s clear that Kiffin is replacing Doug Nussmeier as offensive coordinator, AL.com now is reporting that defensive line coach Chris Rumph is leaving to join the Texas Longhorns staff.

The AJC has a reputation among the Tide faithful for trumping up stories that put Alabama in a bad light to the aid of the Georgia Bulldogs’ recruiting efforts. But someone who may have insider knowledge appears to agree:

It’s not confirmed this is the actual Twitter account of Doug Nussmeier, but if it is, then the football rumor mill is about to kick into high gear. It’s going to be a long, crazy offseason.

    Tweets can be fake, but Kiffin is for real. So is Nussmeier’s failures to use the tools that he had on Bama’s sidelines. Michigan just gained another DUD to add to their 2014 demise, and Bama unloaded some baggage. Saban will keep Kiffin’s baggage stored away. Thus will be an interesting season, but I have faith in the process! Roll Tide.
