Lane Kiffin has previously said that he’ll be back as the Alabama Crimson Tide offensive coordinator. With the ever-changing coaching ranks, Kiffin could always move on.

According to Adam Schefter at ESPN, Kiffin is the favorite to get the San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator job. The 49ers recently hired Jim Tomsula as its new head coach.

Kiffin, who just completed his first year in Alabama, could possibly return to the NFL if he decides to take this new position. However, he’s had a bad reputation in the Bay Area previously.

He was the Oakland Raiders head coach for 20 games during the 2007 and 2008 seasons. He got fired shortly into the second season and was called a liar by the late Al Davis.

Following his exit in the NFL, he became the head coach at the University at Tennessee. After a year there, he moved on to become the University of Southern California Trojans, where he coaches for nearly 4 seasons.

He was fired by the Trojans in the mid-season in 2013.

If it wasn’t for Nick Saban, Kiffin may not have a job right now. After Doug Nussmeier left for Michigan, Saban was quick to hire Kiffin.

His departures have damaged Kiffin’s coaching reputation, yet teams are still interested in hiring him.

Besides Kiffin, former Cleveland Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski is a candidate, as well.
