Friday: Coaches Quick Hits

LSU: We thought it was odd for Times-Picayune LSU beat writer Jim Kleinpeter to comment on LSU assistants Greg Studrawa and D.J. McCarthy. Kleinpeter wrote today, "The line has been a disappointment but the pass protection clearly improved against Auburn. Still can't get that push off the line needed to run consistently. But, yes, Studrawa will be back. All assistants except McCarthy, who is clearly gone, got raises recently."

Itawamba CC: We are hearing that ICC will be interested in talking with West Alabama offensive cooridinator Will Hall regarding the head coaching vacancy. Hall's father is coaching the #13 nationally ranked Madison Central HS program in Madison, MS.

Tennessee & Monte Kiffin: "Can you believe that somebody out there - and it's been a couple and I'm not going to say who - but they said they think Monte Kiffin is going to retire so you may not want to go there and play for him because he probably won't be there," said Kiffin, who left the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to join his son Lane Kiffin at UT. "I want to tell you this right now - I ain't retiring, OK? I'm not going back to the NFL.

"I didn't coach in the NFL 25 years to come to Tennessee and get experience to go back to the NFL. I'm not here because of my kid and grandkids - that may be a little bit of the reason - but I'm going to tell you right here, I'm not going. I'm going to stay right here, I love it here and I'm going to coach here as long as I can coach."
