Lane Kiffin sends funny tweet about record Sebastian Janikowski field goal attempt
Having Sebastian Janikowski attempt a 76-yard field goal was not one of Lane Kiffin’s most sane moments as Oakland Raiders head coach. At least the current FAU head man can have a laugh about it now.
On the 11th anniversary of the play, a Twitter account shared video Saturday of the infamous 76-yard field goal attempt Kiffin had Janikowski try in a 2008 game against the Chargers. The missed attempt preceded Kiffin’s firing two days later.
When tagged in the tweet, Kiffin simply gave the fans what they wanted and said “Happy anniversary Seabass” to the kicker.

In what seems like ages ago, Kiffin was the head coach of the Raiders from 2007-2008. He was fired after starting the 2008 season 1-3, which included the Janikowski stunt. Late Raiders owner Al Davis accused Kiffin of being a liar.
After a brief stint at Tennessee, Kiffin left to become USC’s head coach. He was fired during his fourth season. He’s now in his third year at FAU.
