Lane Kiffin claims Alabama would have won title with him

Florida Atlantic head coach Lane Kiffin was interviewed by the Washington Post this week and was asked if him calling the plays for the Crimson Tide would have made a different outcome against Clemson in the National Championship game.

Kiffin claims that he would have been the difference maker in the close game.

"It’s no disrespect to Steve (Sarkisian)," Kiffin said. "No matter who it was, you’ve been there all year long. You’ve been there for the quarterback. You’re all he knew. You were undefeated together. We’ve won [26] straight games together. You feel like, okay, it’s different.

As great as Sark is, it’s just different. Again, if it had been 14 points either way … when it’s one play here or there, you think if those guys had the person they were used to, it would have made a difference."

Clemson won the title regardless how many times Nick Saban and Kiffin want to babble to the national media about what they could have done differently.

Former Alabama offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian helped his team only score seven points in the final quarter as Clemson dropped an impressive 21 points to win the 2016 National Championship by a score of 35-31. After the loss, Sarkisian left for greener pastures as the new offensive coordinator for the Atlanta Falcons.

Kiffin will coach his first game for the FAU Owls against Navy on Friday.
