Former Oakland Raiders coach Lane Kiffin interviewed for Clemson's vacant coaching position last week, according to the State newspaper.
Kiffin has also been mentioned as a possible candidate to fill Tennessee's vacancy.
Last Friday, Kiffin met with Clemson athletics director Terry Don Phillips in Detroit, a source close to Kiffin confirmed to the newspaper.
Phillips then flew the next morning to attend the Tigers' 41-27 loss at Florida State.
Kiffin becomes the second known candidate to interview with Phillips, joining Oklahoma defensive coordinator Brent Venables, whom Phillips traveled to see Tuesday.
Kiffin, 33, was fired Sept. 30 because of his severed relationship with Raiders owner Al Davis.
