Daniel Tosh Weighs In On Persistent Lane Kiffin Rumors
Here's what we know so far: a surprise hurricane of Lane Kiffin rumors hit our shores earlier today, and no one is sure where they came from, and they're probably not true. The most persistent one is that Kiffin, the offensive coordinator at Alabama, had a falling out with Nick Saban and has been fired.
The most outrageous one is, well, see the tweet below.
Twitter has been on fire over this, and Daniel Tosh, of Tosh.0, even piled on.

Tosh has skewered Kiffin before, on his show (see below).
But the University of Alabama told TMZ that Kiffin is still an assistant coach with the Crimson Tide, and that the rumors were "crazy" and "stupid." TMZ:
Kiffin's name is blowing up on social media today ... over completely unverified rumors that Kiffin was involved in an affair with a high profile Alabama lady.
One of the rumors was that the alleged banging set off head coach Nick Saban -- who gave him walking papers.
But TMZ Sports spoke with Josh Maxson, the director of communications for Alabama football, who tells us Kiffin is "obviously" still employed and remains the team's offensive coordinator.
Ha: "alleged banging" may be the new term of the year. Kiffin rumors are everywhere on social media, seemingly dropping from the clouds all at once. What lit the fuse? So far the answer is shrouded in mystery. But it's like when a new photo of Mars appears and someone spots a curious rock formation that may look like a building or a lake ... everyone jumps to conclusions.
Is Lane Kiffin getting fired for sleeping with an Alabama booster's wife?

Other rumors seen today:

Guys. If Lane Kiffin is resigning, it has nothing to do with affairs and everything to do with the fact that Illinois needs a permanent HC.
