No college football program has had more assistant coaching turnover than Alabama this offseason.

The Crimson Tide have lost a bunch of top assistant coaches to other jobs. Some of these moves were expected, while others were surprising.

Lane Kiffin knows what it's like to coach at Alabama and then leave for another job.

The former Crimson Tide offensive coordinator departed the program in 2016 for the head coaching job at Florida Atlantic University.

Kiffin has weighed in on Alabama's bevy of offseason moves. He thinks the Crimson Tide will be just fine.

"The dynasty will continue!!" Kiffin tweeted in response to a story about Nick Saban's assistant coaching turnover. "He proves everyone wrong every time and will do it again!!!"

It's tough to argue with that logic from Kiffin.

Alabama continues to bring in elite recruiting classes and the Crimson Tide should start the 2019 season ranked either No. 1 or No. 2 in the country.

It would be surprising if Alabama isn't back in the College Football Playoff next season, competing for another national championship.

Alabama has made a couple of reported coaching hires in the wake of some of the departures, though more moves could be on the way.
