Despite the rampant speculation, Lane Kiffin will not be fired Monday, a Raiders source confirmed. “There’s nothing happening today,” said one Raiders source. “It ain’t happening.”
Asked if Kiffin will be coaching the Raiders on Sunday, all the person would say is, “Nothing’s going to happen today.”
Hmm. Tuesday is the players’ day off, and that would be a natural day to make a coaching change. But if Tuesday comes and goes without a Kiffin firing, then it is conceivable that Raiders owner Al Davis will wait until after Sunday’s game against San Diego, when Oakland will be heading into its bye week.
But for Monday, Kiffin is off the clock. Tuesday it starts back up again.
