Monte Kiffin Still Fired Up

August 20th, 2009

Recently, Gary Shelton of the St. Petersburg Times decided to take a detour after his coverage of the Bucs preseason game in Nashville to ride to Knoxville to profile former Bucs defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin.

Old Man Kiffin, 69, left the Bucs to coach with his son Lane at the University of Tennessee. And with Shelton in attendance, Kiffin had to try to break up a near-brawl.

After watching a few plays, all clearly won by the offensive line, defensive line coach Ed Orgeron stood and griped loudly about the selection of the plays shown to the team. Offensive coordinator Jim Chaney shot back that he thought the plays were typical of the way the offense had dominated the practice.

Suddenly, the two men were in each other’s faces, shouting and gesturing. The players spilled onto the floor to separate the men, some of them bouncing up and down from the testosterone and the adrenaline.

The story has a bizarre ending. As promised, Joe had three Bucs-related posts for Gators fans. This is No. 3. What does this have to do with the Gators?

Well, Kiffin’s daughter-in-law, Kayla, has made quite an impression upon college football fans as well as Joe. She’s a Gator and was a sorority sister of Erin Andrews.

Joe’s mind races.

And whatever Gators fans think of her husband Lane, and it isn’t much, no matter the score of the game on Saturday, Lane Kiffin still goes home to his wife Layla.

As Jim Rome would say, “Scoreboard!”

Yeah, you guessed it. Shelton’s story was just enough of an excuse for Joe to post a video of Kayla Kiffin. You are welcome.

You are welcome.
