Alabama's Nick Saban has frequently said that he never stops trying to improve himself as a coach or his team as a whole.
With that in mind, Saban told ESPN's Alex Scarborough that he can't see what the big deal is about him bringing in former Tennessee and Southern Cal coach Lane Kiffin to help come up with ideas for the Crimson Tide's offense.
"I can't believe there's been any reaction to it," Saban told ESPN, explaining that he's had other coaches come swap ideas in the past, including the staff at Oklahoma, Alabama's Jan. 2 Sugar Bowl opponent.
Kiffin was largely seen as an offensive genius in his years as Southern Cal's offensive coordinator, which lead to stints as coach of the Oakland Raiders, Vols and Trojans.
Unfortunately for Kiffin, it was the proficiency of the opponent's offense that resulted first in him having to awkwardly part ways with his father, Monte, who served as his defensive coordinator at Tennessee and through last season with Southern Cal, and eventually led to his own firing after the Trojans were blown out by Arizona State earlier this season, 62-41.
