The FAU football staff is going to be a family affair.
According to reports, Owls head coach Lane Kiffin is hiring his younger brother, Chris, to serve as the team’s defensive coordinator.
From Alex Marvez of Sporting News:
A source told Sporting News that defensive guru Monte Kiffin is expected to assist his son in some capacity as Lane Kiffin enters his first season as Owls head coach.
If Chris Kiffin can live up to the defensive pedigree of his father, Monte Kiffin, Lane could be making an incredible hire.
Chris Kiffin has previously served as the defensive line coach at Arkansas State and Ole Miss, while also spending time as a defensive assistant at USC and a quality control coach at Nebraska.
