The Alabama Crimson Tide will reportedly be without their offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin, according to 247Sports’ Jeff Ermann. He’s the first to report this news.

Kiffin has been linked to coaching openings. The 40-year-old Kiffin interviewed for the Maryland Terrapins coaching job.

The Terps have been under an interim head coach since October when the school fired former head coach Randy Edsall.

“Per a reliable source in Tuscaloosa, ‘the situation has run its course’ and Kiffin seems unlikely to return next year,” Ermann wrote.

Kiffin came to Alabama before the 2014 season, replacing Doug Nussmeier, who left for the University of Michigan. Besides being the offensive coordinator, he’s also the quarterbacks coach.

With the Tide, the team is averaging 36.9 points per game last season. They also made the inaugural College Football Playoffs before losing on New Year’s Day to the Ohio State Buckeyes.

Before coming to Alabama, he was the USC Trojans head coach. In September 2013, he was fired a less than a month into his fourth season.

He was previously the Tennessee Volunteers head coach for a season in 2009 before going to the Trojans.

Before landing the Vols job, he was the Oakland Raiders head coach. He went 5-15 in his only NFL coaching gig, before the late Raiders owner Al Davis fired him over the phone and said that he fired him with cause.

He was the Trojans offensive coordinator before the Raiders job. He was also an assistant coach for the Frenso State Bulldogs, which is his alma mater.

He was also a graduate assistant at Colorado State and an offensive quality control coach with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
