Lane Kiffin says he has offered scholarship to Matt Leinart’s 11-year-old son

Lane Kiffin FAU

Lane Kiffin says that he has offered a scholarship to Matt Leinart’s 11-year-old son.

The talk of Leinart’s son Cole picked up steam on Tuesday after FOX college football reporter Bruce Feldman shared video of Cole throwing a great pass in a flag football game. Feldman joked that he was surprised Kiffin and FAU hadn’t already offered Cole a scholarship.

Kiffin saw the tweet and set the record straight, saying that he has.

Our guess is that Kiffin is joking, but you never know. Kiffin was on staff at USC when Leinart was the Trojans’ quarterback, so it’s possible he has a connection with the Leinarts. Plus, Kiffin infamously got then-13-year-old David Sills to commit to him in 2010. Sills is currently a star wide receiver at West Virginia.

Cole Leinart has a long way to go before college. The odds are probably against Kiffin still being at FAU by the time Cole is ready for university ball.
