KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -Lane Kiffin, the former coach of the NFL Oakland Raiders, is the new coach of Tennessee.
Kiffin becomes the school's 21st coach, but only the third in the last 32 years. His selection comes after ``the first national search for a football coach in University of Tennessee history,'' athletic director Mike Hamilton said.
He takes over the Volunteers two days after Phillip Fulmer's 17-season tenure ended with a win over Kentucky. Kiffin will start at $2 million annually, plus bonuses, under a six-year contract.
Kiffin was the youngest coach in the NFL's modern history when hired to lead the Oakland Raiders in January 2007 at age 31 after spending two seasons as Southern California's recruiting and offensive coordinator.
