Amari Cooper praises Lane Kiffin's coaching style

Alabama’s spring practices have only recently begun, but Crimson Tide junior Amari Cooper is already praising the coaching style of offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin.

According to the wide receiver, Kiffin is “player friendly” and pays close attention to details others may overlook:

“The way plays are called. It’s easy to recognize what you have to do as a player.


“[He's a] pretty cool guy. Pretty laid back guy. He pays attention to everything, every little thing. I noticed that about him when we were practicing for the bowl game.”

Considering Kiffin’s last few stops in the coaching world have generated less than rave reviews, it’ll be interesting to see if Alabama players and fans are still singing his praises when the season begins.
