Firing Offensive Coordinator Lane Kiffin a week before the national championship game was maybe the most un-Saban thing that was committed by Nick Saban. Kiffin who brought you multiple championships with first year starting quarterbacks and got you to the National Championship with a first year Freshman starting quarterback was fired by Nick Saban. Bringing unusual attention and distractions for the Crimson Tide just days before the biggest game of the season. You now place a guy you hired midseason to take over your offense, who Jalen Hurts didn't even know until this prior week of practice and expect him to deliver a national title winning performance. What was so odd about this was a usual mastermind of the game, Nick Saban, let his emotions get the best of him and canned Lane Kiffin to send a message, but he sent the message to the wrong people. In doing so, he cost his team a national championship. This move was just odd from the beginning. Probably should have just kept Kiffin for 1 more week.
