Lane Kiffin – NFL Record: 5-15
Al Davis poached Kiffin – son of great NFL defensive coordinator Monty Kiffin – from USC while he was still an offensive coordinator. Kiffin had never had head coaching experience at the college ranks when he was hired. He went 4-12 in his first season, followed by a 1-3 start the next season – leading to his firing. What followed was a war or words, a smear campaign, and Kiffin filing a wrongful termination grievance – which was unsuccessful.
