FAU Vice President and Director of Athletics Brian White has announced that Lane Kiffin has stepped down from his position as head football coach with the Owls. A search to find the new leader for FAU football will begin immediately.
“Coach Kiffin deserves our thanks and a great deal of credit for continuing to build our football program to high levels of success", said White. "I've informed the team that Defensive Coordinator Glenn Spencer will serve as interim head coach."
“A national search will begin immediately. I know there will be a great deal of interest in the position. We have an extremely talented roster returning with an established culture of success. There are outstanding facilities here with the new Schmidt Family Complex about to open and recent renovations to FAU Stadium. I couldn’t be more excited about the future of our football program.”
White will not be available for comment on the coaching search until a new head coach is named.
