Lane Kiffin Wants His Money



Al Davis, the thinking goes, wanted to get rid of Raiders coach Lane Kiffin, but didn't want to pay the rest of his salary. So he gave him enough rope to hang himself with, fired him for cause, and kept the $2.6 million remaining in Kiffin's contract, even if the process ruined the Raiders' season with disorganization and low morale. Now, Kiffin has put that strategy to the test, filing a grievance through the coaches association and trying to get the rest of his money. According to the Trib, the Raiders have vowed to fight it all the way.
