    He's probably relieved.

    He should have talked to Sean Peyton.

    I guess Al Davis decided that 8 months was long enough to let him wonder and look over his shoulder.

    Why would anyone want to work for that crazy old man?

    I almost feel sorry for Raiders fans.

    Nah, actually I don't feel sorry for them at all.

    Maybe they'll trade one of their starting receivers to Dallas? Anyone know their names?

    Kiffen will have a job inside of a couple of weeks, I'd bet. If I were the Rams, I'd seriously look at Lane Kiffen.

    This is the best thing that could happen to Kiffin. He's a bright young coach who was doing a good job considering what he had going against him. Al Davis seriously needs to just go away, the Raiders will never be a winning franchise again until he does.

    I can not understand how anyone would actually take that position. They'd have to give me such an ungodly amount of money to work for that monkey in a track suit.

    Put me down in the who cares category... The Raiders are a joke of a franchise.

    why? If an owner is stupid its his business. He owns it he can run it anyway he sees fit.

    If Kiffen had quit, he would've forfeited something like 3 million which Al Davis owed him. In the end, he looks a lot smarter than the Cryptkeeper even though he's (temporarily) out of work.

    From PFT:

    Per Mortensen, Davis told Kiffin that he is terminating him without pay, and that Kiffin should not expect to receive the remaining money due him on his contract. It’s safe to assume Kiffin and his agent/lawyer will have something to say about that.

    John Clayton reported on ESPN that Kiffin is still owed $3.5 million.

    It's hard to believe anybody would take that HC job. That franchise is a farce.

    The only guy who might take it is Ryan, their DC.

    The league has no business telling the owners how to run their franchise.
