And he's outta there! Al Davis fired the Raiders head coach, Lane Kiffin, a quarter way through the season. Are we really surprised? With a 5-15 record since becoming head coach he was dismissed. The last time Al Davis did this was to Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan back in the day. It just goes to show you that if you try to stand up to the man he will just knock you down.
I'm going to miss Kiffin. I think he's a good coach, he's just a young coach who had yet to find his footing. When you enter an institution like the Raiders you have to "play the game" so to speak. Kiffin didn't. He argued, disagreed, and poof...disappeared. I wonder who will take his place?
