Former USC Coach Lane Kiffin spent a week last month observing Alabama’s program.
Now, with Alabama offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier taking a similar position at Michigan, Kiffin is in consideration to replace him with the Crimson Tide, according to several reports.
Kiffin and Alabama Coach Nick Saban are friends and share the same agent, Jimmy Sexton.
USC Athletic Director Pat Haden fired Kiffin on Sept. 29, after the Trojans returned to Los Angeles from a loss at Arizona State.
Kiffin has coached in the Southeastern Conference. He was head coach at Tennessee in 2009 before leaving to succeed Pete Carroll at USC.
