Florida Atlantic coach Lane Kiffin knows a thing or two about being on the wrong end of a blow up by a head coach.
The former Alabama coordinator has been the target of some of Nick Saban’s verbal barrages.
The Alabama head coach calls them “ass chewings.”
Kiffin, on Tuesday, joined “SiriusXM College Sports Nation” and was asked if he would talk to his assistants the same way he was talked to.
“No, that’s not really how I do it. Greg (McElroy) knows about those,” Kiffin said. “Those things come up, and everybody has different ways of dealing with them. It’s just not really how I do it. I’m not really big on humiliating assistant coaches in front of everybody. I write down notes. In the staff meeting, I explain what we want to get done.”
Former Alabama standout Jonathan Allen recently re-told of how the Crimson Tide defense tried to make Kiffin a target of Saban’s ire.
“We love to get Lane Kiffin yelled at and fired up in practice,” Allen told AL.com in December.
