What does Ohio State head coachUrban Meyer think about the Alabama hiring Lane Kiffin as its offensive coordinator? Meyer, in his former role as head coach of Florida, was the subject of unfounded accusations of recruiting violations by Kiffin during the latter's one year as head coach of Tennessee.

“I think it’s great. I have a lot of respect for Coach Saban. There has been a lot of publicity about Lane Kiffin and I having issues. There’s none. We’ve talked many times since. He’s obviously a good football coach, and I wish him well. I think it was a great hire for Alabama.”

Kiffin left Tennessee after one season to become head coach of USC. He was fired from that job after going 3-2 in the first five games of the 2013 season.
