GeorgiaOwl saidSome NOT very positive news on the Coach K front per the Miami Herald;
This story was published today so OUR U needs to step up and get it done!!!Posted On: May 15th 2018, 11:47 AM
If you scroll a little further down, you'll see an article listing the top 25 sports figures in Sofla. Negatively slanted comment, but still ranked above home-town Butch.
Rick saidIt may be silly, but it's in motion and is with his agent right now..
If I were a betting man would say you will see something finalized prior to July 1st.
We shall see…

DONE DEALPosted On: Jun 21st 2018, 8:02 PM
Nice. Even if this is ultimately meaningless, it's good to see FAU get this done. I think it shows that it will take a really great opportunity to arise for Kiffin to leave.
Again though, a special job will have to open for him to leave…how much longer is Saban (66) planning on coaching?
As for speculation on where Kiffin might eventually want to land, that is still a two-way street. I totally agree there is only a few places he has on his list as "dream" jobs. But not only do those have to come open, but they also have to want Kiffin over whoever else is available. I think it is a little premature to even suggest Alabama would be interested in him - I would think Dabo is miles ahead of pretty much any coach as the potential Saban replacement given his success and his ties to the school. But I also don't think Saban is retiring for another several years.
Not saying Rick is making that connection - just pointing out Kiffin will want something really special and that place will also have to want Kiffin.
This should help "some" of the negative recruiting saying he is gone after this year. College Coaches have NO class when it comes to negative recruiting if/when needed. And to keep their POWER 5 HUGE $$$ they will lie and cheat every time IMHO!
Lane Kiffinâ€™s buyout at FAU is an affordable $2m - SBNation.com
"26 coaches currently have a buyout at least five times larger than Kiffin’s." REALLY!!!
I hope and pray Coach K stays the rest of his career and maybe those in the know are correct. But having such a "small" buyout will sure encourage other schools to meddle and tempt every good year we have.
Coach - build your power program and dynasty right here, F the BigBoys who have screwed you over many times!
