The University of Tennessee will officially announce Lane Kiffin as its next head coach in a news conference Monday at 12:45 central. It just might be the FULL MONTY next year on The Hill. ESPN's Chris Mortensen is reporting that Kiffen's father, Monte Kiffen will join his son on the coaching staff.
The elder Kiffin is currently the defensive coordinator for the Tampa Buccaneers and is considered one of the best defensive minds in the country. Lane wanted to team up his father when he was the head coach of the Raiders but owner Al Davis refused, causing a riff that eventually led to Kiffin's firing. It will be interesting to see how much of a pay cut Monte Kiffin will take. He's currently making about 2 million with the Bucs.
You can watch the news conference tomorrow live on Action News 5 at Noon or wmctv.com.
