"I think it's been a great two years, just to be a part of it," Kiffin said. "To see how (Saban) handles all of the situations, I take notes on it. Maybe I'll write a book someday."
He had to mold and adjust around quarterback Jake Coker. It was an awkward relationship for the two at first, and Coker all but said Monday night he didn't like Kiffin when he first arrived in Tuscaloosa. The two were very different, and it took time for a quarterback from south Alabama and a coach from California to start speaking the same language.
"We started off with a different relationship because we were so different and after the Ole Miss game we put everything together, figured everything out and found a way to get it done," Coker said. "I can't tell you how much he's helped me and I can't tell you how much I appreciate him."
I was hoping for at least 2 years of Kiffin and we got that. I do think that if he stayed longer he could totally pull a Kirby Smart, but I don't think he has the patience for that. We'll see what happens I guess.
