Summer Reading: Did You Know About The Other Kiffin?

Perusing the internet for news and information this afternoon, I ran across an article by Dirk Chatelain of the Omaha World-Herald.  Before I go on, I must admit my shame in not even realizing that Lane Kiffin had a younger brother; for some reason, the concept never crossed my mind.  But the story of Chris Kiffin is absolutely fascinating.  At 27 years old, Chris is a part of the coaching staff for Bo Pelini and the Nebraska Cornhuskers.

This family just gets more and more interesting with each new piece of information.  The biography piece lays out a lot of the connections and interactions that both boys had while growing up as sons of Monte.  In the article, you find out:

  • what kinds of experiences the son of an NFL coach gets while growing up.
  • how Ed Orgeron helped him overcome a drinking problem that could have ended his career.
  • how his football instincts helped a team of 10-year olds overcome an unstoppable opponent.
  • why Lane and Monte won't be in Tennessee next weekend.  (Hint:  Woo! for Chris!)

It's an article worth enjoying.
