Ohio State offensive coordinator Tom Herman won the Broyles Award, which is given annually to the best assistant coach in all of college football, earlier today. However, Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin stole the spotlight at the ceremony by repeatedly making fun of Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban during his speech to the Rotary Club of Little Rock and Delta Dental, which gives out the award.
In a video posted by the Broyles Award, Kiffin made fun of Saban for being short — Saban is 5-foot-6, while Kiffin is much taller — and jokingly said that Saban tells Kiffin that he loves him while they’re on the sidelines together during games. Kiffin’s speech, which is pretty great outside of the Saban jokes, starts at the 1:50 mark of this video. If you’d like to get right to the part where he pokes fun at Saban, jump to about the 3:00 mark. Check it out:
Kiffin and the rest of the Crimson Tide will take on Ohio State in the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 1, 2015. The game is scheduled to kick off at 8:30 P.M. EST, and you can watch it on ESPN.
