Alabama offensive coordinator had a huge hand in helping the Tide capture a national championship on Monday with a 45-40 win vs. the Clemson Tigers.
The least the Tide could have done in return was hold the team bus for him, right?
Lane Kiffin helped #Alabama win the national title tonite yet just got left behind by the team buses.

In what surely will sound like the Most Lane Kiffin Thing Ever, Kiffin walked out of the University of Phoenix Stadium only to see the team’s four buses pulling away. Kiffin was in mid-sentence, talking about his relationship with Alabama QB Jake Coker — “My bus is leaving,” Kiffin said. “That’s not good.”
They can’t leave without Kiffin, could they?
“They’re leaving right now.”
Kiffin whistled to a security guard about 50 yards away to stop the last bus. He hustled after it, but it was to no avail. He and his younger brother, Chris — Ole Miss’ defensive line coach — were now stranded at the stadium.
“First, I get fired on the tarmac, and now I get left behind at the national championship,” Kiffin said, half-jokingly, referring to his USC ouster.
Kiffin tried to figure out what he and his brother were going to do for a ride. A TV camera followed him.
“Who is that guy?” a motorcycle cop just outside the stadium asked, observing the curious scene.
