Lane Kiffin talks a lot of crap about Alabama and Nick Saban, but he must see some value in what his old boss has done as he’s now hired a second person away from the Crimson Tide. According to Bruce Feldman of Sports Illustrated, Kiffin hired defensive analyst Wes Neighbors to become his new safety coach at FAU.

Previously, Kiffin hired then-Alabama strength coach Wilson Love to be his head strength and conditioning coach.

Kiffin has done a lot of things right since taking over as the head coach of hte Owls. He guided the program to a 11-3 record this past season, overcoming a 1-3 start to rattle off 10 straight wins, including a blowout win in the fun-filled Boca Raton Bowl, in his first season with the Owls.

Though, he might want to think first next time he considers tweeting at a player from another school.
