Lane Kiffin trolls Tennessee again, this time in regards to Jon Gruden

Lane Kiffin seems to be trolling Tennessee once again.

It seems to be a trendy habit for Kiffin, whose Twitter game is as good as just about anyone’s.

A fan in Tampa told Kiffin he was having some trouble finding Florida Atlantic gear and wanted to see if the Owls’ head coach could assist him.

“Can’t find any gear in Tampa can you help me out Coach?” the fan asked on Friday.

Kiffin replied with this incredible statement:

Later in the day, Kiffin responded to a different Tennessee fan offering more help. Kiffin said he would send the fan some Volunteers apparel, as long as it helps get Gruden to UT:

Report: Raise, extension on the way for Will Muschamp

What Will Muschamp has done at South Carolina in such a short time should be celebrated.

Muschamp inherited a mess in Columbia (3-9 team), but he’s turned things around in a big way … and quickly.

Sure, he’s benefited from a rather weak SEC East, but he’s proven that when he has a good QB, he can win football games. Muschamp will always put a good defensive product on the field, but it was the lack of offense — specifically the QB play — at Florida that eventually got him fired.

Muschamp led South Carolina to a 6-7 record in his first season, and now, the Gamecocks are sitting at 7-3 heading into Saturday’s game against Wofford. A second-place finish in the SEC East is certainly likely at this point, and what a cherry it would be to upset Clemson next Saturday.

According to a report by Josh Kendall at The State, citing sources, USC is set to give Muschamp a contract extension and raise by early December.

He’s currently making $3.1 million with the Gamecocks (and still being paid by Florida). Muschamp signed a five-year contract in December of 2015.

Coaching is a pretty good gig, huh?

North Carolina AD Bubba Cunningham inks 6-year extension

North Carolina appears to be happy with the work of athletic director Bubba Cunningham, as the two sides agreed to a six-year contract extension, Chancellor Carol L. Folt announced Friday.

“I deeply appreciate Bubba’s commitment, day in and day out, to our student-athletes, coaches, and university,” Folt said. “He is a key member of my executive team, and his dedication to the student-athlete experience, both on and off the field, is just one example of why he is such an important leader in the field of college athletics and student success both at Carolina and in the United States.”

Cunningham issued a statement as well, thanking the university for the opportunity.

“Carolina Athletics’ mission is to educate and inspire through athletics, and I am honored and excited to continue to work each day with our talented student-athletes, dedicated coaches, and staff, and committed university colleagues,” he said. “Thank you to Chancellor Folt, as well as to the Boards of Trustees and Board of Governors, for continuing to provide me with this incredible opportunity.”

Cunningham, who accepted the position in 2011, is set to earn a base salary of $740,440 through June of 2023 in the deal that was approved by the school’s board of trustees last week.
