Report: Lane Kiffin Bringing Alabama's Mike Locksley With Him To FAU

Lane Kiffin is reportedly planning on taking at least one of Alabama's assistants with him to FAU.

According to a report by Football Scoop, Lane Kiffin is reportedly planning on bringing Alabama offensive analyst Mike Locksley with him to Florida Atlantic.

Kiffin, who was introduced as FAU's new head coach earlier this week, will reportedly make Locksley the offensive coordinator.

From Football Scoop:

Sources tell FootballScoop Lane Kiffin is planning to bring Mike Locksley to FAU as offensive coordinator. Locksley is formerly the head coach at New Mexico from 2009-11 and served as Maryland’s offensive coordinator from 2012-15. He spent this fall as an offensive analyst at Alabama.

Locksley has been an elite recruiter in the past and would likely be a pretty solid hire for Kiffin.

Update: Bruce Feldman says the report is not accurate.

More to come.
