Lane Kiffin’s staff at Tennessee is taking shape. At first glance, it’s looking pretty good.
First he got his dad, Monte, to be the D-Coordinator. Monte has been the well respected D-Coordinator for the Tampa Bay Bucs the last decade or so. He is considered by many to be one of the smartest defensive minds in football.
Next Lane got Ed Orgeron from the New Orleans Saints. Orgeron was the Ole Miss head coach for a few years and before that he was recruiting coordinator at USC were he helped bring in guys like Reggie Bush.
Also added was former St. Louis Rams Tight Ends coach John Chaney. Chaney was Offensive Coordinator for Purdue from 1998-2005. During the time that Drew Brees and Kyle Orton were there.
It’s pretty obvious that Kiffin has assembled an all star staff on paper. The question now is can they recruit and coach kids to an SEC title.
