It'd be hard for me to be away from my kids - can't ask another man to do it.

why don't we leave it up to Kiffin to stay or not stay and where he will go?

what the hell else are we supposed to talk about? That is LITERALLY the purpose of this message board.

UCLA checks a lot of the boxes for Kiff, aveng himself against USC, close to his kids, big money and exposure. Hopefully theyíre gun shy about the ever tweeting TD signaling mad man.†

I was saying last night, we are a really good spot for him in many ways, mainly bc we arenít that stuck up. Lane pulling the train horn on the sidelines was awesome, heíd be shredded for that if we played on ABC. Selfies on the field with students…gets harder to be yourself the higher you go.

ALL. OF. THIS!

I think we get a year or two more and then Lane has a lot of thinking to do about lifestyle, quality of life, etc.†

His personality is what it is and that's tough to change or even restrain as a human being, especially as one gets older. Here, we really have no choice to deal with it; and I think it's great.†

But, he's a competitor in a high profile, high stress kind of job. I think his career arc at FAU will match President Kelly's.†

UCLA is easily the best fit of all the coaching vacancies.†

I do think thereís a lot to be said for being the coach of a school that loves your personality. He never had Lane Train t-shirt giveaways at UT or USC, and Bama was ready for him to move on. Here heís got a comfortable salary, and a fan base thatís becoming obsessed with him. Hard to leave that behind.†

It seems like the entire conference is praying he leaves after this year. I believe they will be very disappointed.

Mora was reportedly earning 3.5M at UCLA.

Unfortunately, I could see Kiffin leaving for that and to be closer to his kids.

That's if they want him.

He needs continuous winning seasons to say walk away to something great. †To be honest his name will always come up itís great for sports buzz marketing. The great jobs from blue blood programs has past for Kiffin. He will going forward be a lower tier Power 5 or G5 coach. He tarnished trust and once that is gone Its gone forever especially with some programs. †My number is 4 that he stays anything past that means he stays longer and likes the gig. †He needs bowl wins, a New Years six bowl win and getting ranked. †We can keep him, †he needs to believe that we are like other successful power 5 programs and care to succeed in football. †Once the Schmidt complex is up this may be the beacon he needs to go the next level to win recruits.
See if he can get the 5 star guys and win a lot why go to say Ole Miss where you are always the stepchild. The fans have embraced him here even after knowing his past, †we both needed each other. †Heís holding up his end of the deal but administration needs to step up. †Part of the perception of a Power 5 is pay. If we can offer the million fine, †but add a lucrative bonus structure that can be met for him to make more. We are unique and overall we can keep him, †but he has to know that he has full control and that we have his back. †He can go to UCLA today and he will never have full control, once they lose a few years to SC he will be right back at square one. †He stays to build himself and look heís getting the attention that he desires here. † If he leaves after year 2, †heís going to be out of a job again, thatís how this business works.†

I Agree. This is the first opening that actually seems like a viable landing spot for Kiffin. Program with a high ceiling that also might consider Kiffin right now

Kiffin said he wants to build something. Kiffin seems very smart. I think he knows having two winning seasons at FAU and leaving is different than doing the same at a P5 program. There will be no drop off with the P5 program. They will recruit another P5 caliber coach and recruit 4 and 5 star athletes.†
Iím sure he knows if he is going to establish something at FAU it will take a little more time. Iím sure he will move on at some point.†
Thatís the way I see it.†

What ever he intends to do I think it has already been discussed with Kelly and Chun. They were fully aware of the risk of a short stay when they hired him so Iím sure itís one of the first things they talked about.†

FAU - THE REAL SLEEPING GIANT
