Clay Travis has more positive words to share about Lane Kiffin.
On Saturday, the former Tennessee coach and Alabama offensive coordinator led Florida Atlantic to a 27-0 advantage at halftime against North Texas in the Conference USA championship game. During the early rout, the Outkick The Coverage analyst used Twitter to praise Kiffin’s “absolutely filthy” play-calling, and Travis went on to wonder why Vols officials haven’t hired the coach.
Lane Kiffin with absolutely filthy play calling. How are Vols not locking him up?!

Right now, it seems unlikely that Kiffin will receive a serious look from Tennessee, even with the seemingly endless coaching search chugging along in Knoxville.
Yes, Kiffin has impressed while leading Florida Atlantic to a 9-3 record entering Saturday. But it’s hard to get past the baggage that resulted from his time as Tennessee’s coach during the 2009 season.
Still, expect Travis to continue to sing Kiffin’s praises on Twitter until Tennessee hires a coach.
