Clay Travis thinks 1 SEC school should target Lane Kiffin as its next head coach

Lane Kiffin returning to the SEC might cause a seismic shift across the southeastern United States.

If it happens, it would be his third stop at an SEC school after Tennessee and Alabama. Clay Travis thinks it’s a possibility and believes that Arkansas should go after him.

As for Arkansas, do you know who my top target would be if I was hiring for the Razorbacks? Lane Kiffin.

I’m serious.

Kiffin’s FAU offense put up over 800 yards, scored on 11 straight possessions and finished with 69 points against North Texas this past Saturday. In his first year at FAU Lane Kiffin is going to take an FAU team that finished 3-9 in Conference USA last year and he’s going to win the conference.

I think Kiffin at Arkansas would have the chance to be special.

While he had success as a coordinator at Alabama, he only has one year under his belt as an SEC head coach. He went 7-6 at Tennessee in 2009. Yet he would still make waves as a significant hire in Fayetteville and it would likely fulfill Kiffin as a power 5 head coach.

First Arkansas would have to let Bret Bielema go free, which only seems more and more likely every day.
