Lane Kiffin is wasting no time making waves in his new role as the head football coach at Ole Miss. Yesterday he went on Dan Patrick’s show and was asked about Nick Saban’s longevity. Boy, did he have an answer.

There is probably some truth in there. Saban himself has acknowledged that Miss Terry had to force him to stay in his chair per doctor’s orders after his hip replacement, and he was back on the job sooner than anyone expected. Still, Lane wouldn’t be Lane if he didn’t provide salacious soundbites meant to get a reaction.
