Lane Kiffin Got Left Behind After The National Championship Game

Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin might have just won a title, but the team bus waits for no one. The coach found himself scrambling for a ride after Monday’s National Championship Game.


What else is there to do but hang out in an empty stadium?

Kiffin joked about the mishap, once he was actually on a bus:


Fox Sports’ Bruce Feldman, who was getting quotes from Kiffin, witnessed it all:

Kiffin whistled to a security guard about 50 yards away to stop that last bus. He hustled after it, but it was to no avail. Kiffin and his younger brother, Chris — Ole Miss’ defensive line coach — were now stranded at the stadium.

“First, I get fired on the tarmac, and now I get left behind at the national championship,” Kiffin said, half-jokingly.
