This is really weird.
Former Tennessee quarterback Erik Ainge missed playing for Lane Kiffin. He graduated from Tennessee in 2008--2007 was his final season--and Kiffin arrived in 2009.
However, Ainge, who is currently a radio host, kept up with Kiffin's one-year tenure, and he's apparently not a big fan of him.
The 31-year-old Ainge publicly shared this bizarre Twitter DM exchange with Kiffin, which begins with him telling the coach "you suck" and that he never wants him to come back to Tennessee. Kiffin responds in typical Kiffin fashion.
So Ainge came at Kiffin, then lathered on some praise and apologized for being childish, then leaked this conversation to try and illustrate Kiffin doesn't want to come back.
This truly is the most bizarre coaching search of all-time.
