Lane Kiffin has reportedly been fired from the Alabama Crimson Tide! Or was he? Social media exploded with rumors that the Offensive Coordinator was let go because he allegedly slept with the head coach’s daughter!
It’s a weird case of alleged sex scandals mixing with college football. Lane Kiffin, 40, a member of the coaching staff of the University of Alabama’s Crimson Tide, was trending on Twitter after he was supposedly fired (or he allegedly quit) from his position. Throw in an rumored affair with the daughter of the head coach, Nick Saban, 63, and this story keeps getting more bizarre!
Lane Kiffin became the most popular Offensive Coordinator on Sept. 24, reports Yahoo. Unverified rumors of his firing spread like wildfire on social media. Some fans alleged that Lane may have gotten into a fight with the head coach, while other rumors claimed he reportedly was sleeping with the wife of a Booster (aka an official supporter of the team.)
Others speculated he was supposedly fired over an alleged affair with Nick’s daughter! This allegation comes after the head coach’s child, Kristen Saban, married fellow Alabama graduate, Adam Setas in May 2015, reports AL.com. Some rumors ignored the alleged sex scandals and suggested Lane was leaving Alabama so he could supposedly take over the head coach position at Illinois.
These allegations reportedly came out of nowhere, as there wasn’t a post or a report accusing Lane of any wrongdoing, reports Deadspin. Hmm. In spite of these rumors and chatter, Lane remains employed by the University of Alabama — at the moment. Director of Communications for Alabama football, Josh Maxon, told TMZ Sports that Lane is “obviously” still the team’s Offensive Coordinator.

Guys. If Lane Kiffin is resigning, it has nothing to do with affairs and everything to do with the fact that Illinois needs a permanent HC.

As for the accusations of Lane sleeping with a booster’s wife or with the coach’s daughter, Josh reportedly said he wouldn’t comment on “stupid” or “crazy” rumors.” We will keep you updated if there’s any further development on this story, HollywoodLifers.
What do you think about Lane’s rumored firing/resigning, HollywoodLifers? Do you think there’s any truth to them or is this possibly a cruel prank pulled by some Auburn fans?
