Lane Kiffin Responds To Nick Saban's Contract Extension

The former Alabama offensive coordinator has responded to Saban's new contract.

The Nick Saban-Lane Kiffin relationship was one of college football's most fascinating while the two were together at Alabama.

Kiffin has since moved on to become the head coach at Florida Atlantic University, and some reports suggested he was pushed out of Tuscaloosa, Ala. by Saban.

Earlier this week, Alabama announced a massive contract extension for Saban. The deal will pay Saban more than $11 million this season and keep him with the Crimson Tide through the 2024 season.

Kiffin tweeted tonight about his former coach's new contract. He's happy for him.

Is that a genuine congratulations?

Probably.

But you never know with Lane.
