Lane Kiffin is known for his attempts to "recruit" people on Twitter with his #CometotheFAU mantra. Today he did a little bit different kind of recruiting.

It seems like Lane is trying to solicit female love interests for his program's equipment intern, Kenneth Pleimann. Pleimann is "struggling" in that department according to Kiffin.

"Happy b day!!! @KP3_EQ_MGR any single girls please follow our "horn guy" He is really struggling lately," Kiffin tweeted.

No one said Lane wasn't brutally honest. He's typically pretty unfiltered on social media, but this is next level. Pleimann has responded to the tweet.

On the field, Kiffin's team is having a bounce back season after going 5-7 in 2018. The Owls are 5-3 heading into Saturday's game at Western Kentucky.

One win in the team's final four games will clinch bowl eligibility.
