Athletic director Mike Hamilton announced that the former Oakland Raiders coach will be on campus for news conference.
Kiffin, 33, replaces Phillip Fulmer, who was forced out after 17 seasons as Vols coach. Fulmer won a national championship in 1998 but had two losing seasons in the last five years, including a 4-7 mark this year.
Kiffin was the youngest coach in the NFL's modern history when hired to lead the Raiders in January 2007 at age 31. He had a rocky relationship with Oakland owner Al Davis, who fired him Sept. 30 for what he said was insubordination. Kiffin had a 5-15 record with the Raiders.
