Lane Kiffin has great line about the fun of working with Nick Saban
Lane Kiffin and Nick Saban had a somewhat turbulent relationship during their time together at Alabama. That always makes for good quotes when Kiffin is asked to reminisce about it.
The Ole Miss coach had another good line Wednesday when asked by FOX Sports host Colin Cowherd about the fun times working under Saban.
“Yeah, like 14 times a year, 14 days a year when we had way better players than everyone we lined up against. That was fun,” Kiffin said, via Adam Spencer of Saturday Down South. “That’s not a shot on Coach Saban. He’d say the same thing. I’ve seen someone ask him, ‘Fun? What’s that?’ Fun is holding up a trophy, handing it to the next person and saying, ‘Alright, let’s go win another one.'”
That sounds about right. Saban’s standards are exacting and he’s all about winning. It’s enough to remind you of another famous quote Kiffin offered up about working at Alabama.
Kiffin and Saban will have the chance to go head-to-head now that Kiffin is coaching at Ole Miss. That should be fun.
