TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WPMI) —
A bit of a bombshell tonight as Alabama prepares for the national championship game against Clemson. Tide offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin is out and will not coach for Alabama.
The official word is, he will re-focus his attention on his next job as head coach at Florida Atlantic.
Bama's incoming offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian will take over a bit earlier than he anticipated.
Today Kiffin called into the Paul Finebaum show where he talked for the first time about today's announcement.
Coach Saban said he saw some focus issues preparing for the semifinal game against Washington.. so today he put an end to *those distractions... Going with the lesser of two evils heading to tampa for the national championship.
