  • FAU signs up to ride the Lane Train for 10 years

The former Tennessee coach and Alabama offensive coordinator has proven to be a success in his first season in Boca Raton, Fla., while leading Florida Atlantic to a 10-3 record before its bowl appearance. Florida Atlantic posted three consecutive 3-9 marks prior to Kiffin's arrival.

According to longtime college football reporter Bruce Feldman, FAU and Kiffin are finalizing a 10-year deal.

"This is further proof of FAU's unbridled ambition", FAU president John Kelly told ESPN on Tuesday. He was sacked in his second season with the Oakland Raiders, left after one year at Tennessee for the USC job and then was sacked during his fourth season with the Trojans in 2013. Sophomore running back Devin Singletary rushed for 1,796 yards and an FBS record-high 29 touchdowns (he also had a touchdown reception) to earn C-USA Most Valuable Player Award honors.

FAU is obviously enthusiastic about having a legitimate head coach lead its football program to the Promised Land, perhaps a coveted spot in the top 25.

The deputy prime minister said Turkey believes that United Nations members will stick to their earlier decisions and global law. It had the backing of 14 of the 15 countries on the Security Council, including U.S. allies Britain, France, Japan and Ukraine.

Lane Kiffin continues to be great.

"I can go wherever I want and not many people recognize me, and who wouldn't love living in Boca?" said Kiffin, who bought a place on the water and owns a boat and two jet skis along with a dock where he can fish.

Thanks to the ten-win season, Kiffin is already the second-winningest head coach in FAU history behind Howard Schnellenberger (58).

"There's no entitlement with these kids".

An NBC spokesperson told The Daily Caller that the network paid a smaller, unspecified amount as part of a severance package. Lauer has said he is "truly sorry" but said some of what was being said about him was untrue or mischaracterized.

Kiffin's initial deal was for five years and paid him $950,000 annually. They're hungry, and every time we win, it's like they've just won the Super Bowl.

DE Jamal Davis, Akron: It took a few years to get going, but once he did, he became the Zips' best defensive playmaker.

In Kiffin's previous head coach positions, he hasn't lasted longer than four seasons.

"He has kind of been the difference for us the last two or three games", Bowden said.
