Lane Kiffin reveals one way Bill Belichick is more thorough than most GMs
Some college coaches can likely expect calls from Bill Belichick, the New England Patriots coach, ahead of the 2021 NFL draft.
It is common for Belichick to inquire about the prospects he may be designing. He doesn't call every trainer - not even close by. But he definitely calls some, especially those he has long-standing relationships with like Chip Kelly and Nick Saban and, apparently, Lane Kiffin.
Kiffin was asked how often he hears from NFL coaches and asked about prospects prior to the NFL draft.
“We get a couple of calls. Probably not as much as you think, ”said Kiffin during an appearance on the Pat McAfee Show. "No disrespect, I think a lot of people in the NFL think," OK, we figured it out. We don't need college people's opinions. "That may sound crazy to you, but it happens.
"The really good guys like him, he's so smart he calls and says - I remember it was a close end - he said," OK, I remember you had Zach Miller with the Raiders 10 years ago or what ever. How do you compare him to him? "That's how smart he is. To be able to remember who you had and which players you were with, to compare them. That's why he's so great at it."
Kiffin, currently a trainer at Ole Miss, has worked with a number of other stations for Saban and Alabama.
