This isn’t our story to tell, so we won’t steal the thunder; but this is too good not to make you guys aware of.
Chuck King of FAUowlaccess has the story of when Lane Kiffin was hired at FAU after the 2016 season.
The short version is:
- FAU administration all wanted to hire Lane Kiffin
- FAU AD Pat Chung couldn’t reach a deal with Lane
- Chun then moved on and hired another (very successful) coach
- However, without Chun’s knowledge, the movers and shakers at FAU had gone back to Lane and got the deal done
- Chun made the case for the man he had already reached an agreement with; but to no avail
- University President told Chun to back out of his deal, put on a big smile and introduce Lane Kiffin as “Our next head coach”
- Chun subsequently left to become AD at Washington State
- Kiffin has turned out to be an excellent hire
This was too good not to share.
