In an interview with ESPN, Kiffin revealed “several schools” contacted him about their job openings this offseason.
From ESPN -
Kiffin says there were conversations with several schools gauging his interest in their job openings, declining to say which ones. That should not come as a shock. Many have wondered how long he will stay in this job, viewed among outsiders as a stepping-stone to something bigger.
He says he sees it differently, that he is happy at FAU, living in South Florida in relative anonymity. He says he is not coaching for another job, the way many others do in their quest to move up the ladder. He calls last season one of the most gratifying of his career.
But as long as he keeps winning here, the calls from suitors will keep coming. Much bigger schools will make much bigger offers, believing a rehabilitated Kiffin has moved past his early career mistakes. Then he will have a decision to make.
He led FAU to an 11-3 season in 2017 and signed a 10 year contract extension following the team's bowl win.
