(Photo by Joel Auerbach/Getty Images)Lane Kiffin has done a pretty impressive job so far as head coach of the FAU Owls. The Conference USA team may not be at nearly the same level as his last two head coaching stops: Tennessee and USC. However, he clearly still has some clout in the coaching ranks.Today, Kiffin made an announcement about a pair of FAU Coaching Camps. On June 2 and June 7, the Owls will bring in members of some of the top staffs in the country. It is unclear which coaches from the various staffs will be in attendance, but overall it is an impressive collection.On Saturday, June 2, FAU holds its prospect camp. That will feature coaches from Michigan, Ohio State, Oregon, Syracuse, and Texas.The following Thursday, FAU holds an adidas sponsored “showcase.” That has a large collection of coaches going, including those from Georgia Tech, Indiana, Kansas, NC State, Nebraska, Rutgers, UMass, Western Michigan and others.Lane Kiffin announced the FAU Football Camp coaching lineups on Twitter:Come to #thefaU for camp this summer pic.twitter.com/hBrdSysUZL— Lane Kiffin (@Lane_Kiffin) May 21, 2018Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like Nick Saban is making the trip from Alabama… at least not for one of these two dates.We look forward to an eventual meeting of the minds between Kiffin and his old mentor. He’s had plenty to say about Saban since leaving Alabama.Overall, it isn’t a huge surprise to see so many staffs heading to FAU. The school is in a recruiting hot bed down in South Florida.That is hugely important recruiting grounds for programs like Kansas, Nebraska, and Syracuse, that don’t have natural recruiting footprints in their backyard. Powers like Michigan and Ohio State also spend plenty of time going after players from the Sunshine State.Bringing in coaches from top programs like this is also a boon for Kiffin, as he looks to get some of the top Florida players that aren’t getting the looks from schools like Florida, Florida State, and Miami to stay home. Of course, with Kiffin there is always the risk that he may be at another job by the time you’re set to play for him, and he’s admitted to getting calls from other schools after just one year in Boca Raton.last_img read more
