Kiffin’s “Sweet Home Alabama” A Hit With At Least One Recruit’s Mom

gfx - they said itLane Kiffin is already a hit on the recruiting trail for Alabama.  As in the singer of one of the biggest hit songs of the 1970s.

Over the weekend, Nick Saban and hosted a get-together of Tide recruits’ parents at his domicile.  Kiffin, the Tide’s new offensive coordinator, was on-hand to shake and howdy along with the other members of Bama’s staff.  He also did a little singing that won over Donetris Scarbrough, the mother of 5-star Alabama commit Bo Scarbrough.  Kiffin’s selection?  “Sweet Home Alabama,” of course.  Scarbrough was impressed:


“This weekend was my first chance to get to meet Coach Kiffin.  They had the parents over at Coach Saban’s house.  It was too much fun.  We had a really good time.  We sang, ‘Sweet Home Alabama.’…

I think if you’re new there, you have to do karaoke.  It’s kind of the theme with the new coaches.  Everyone has to do a karaoke night.  It was his turn and he kept on hiding.  He told me, ‘I think I’ll go ahead and do it, if you sing with me.’  He told me it would make it easier and be fun.  We tried to figure out what song we would do first.  He said, ‘Come on up here and do it with me, I don’t want to do it by myself…

It made the night.  It was the talk of the night.”


Saban doing the electric slide on the dance floor earned some high marks as well.
