Lane Kiffin should be lauded for bringing football legend Johnny Majors back into the Tennessee fold. Majors was one of the classiest men ever to coach in the SEC, and suffered a horrible exile into the wilderness during Phil Fulmer’s days in Knoxville.
That has changed, and is earning the young Tennessee coach praise. Roy Exum wrote in the Chattanoogan that it was Kiffin’s greatest moment. “I am so excited about Lane Kiffin right now I can hardly stand it. He might not have won his first game, but when he won Johnnyâ€™s heart, he went a long way towards winning mine, too,” Exum wrote.
I won’t say I’m ready to embrace Kiffin; I won’t say his treatment of Majors makes up for all his foolishness, but he finally did something right and I wanted to make note of it.
