T.J. Simers of the OC Register reports that Lane Kiffin will be swinging by the set of ESPN College GameDay when the show visits Seattle on Saturday. In his column, Simers writes:
Lane Kiffin texted to say he’s not talking to anyone now on the advice of his agent. And yet he said he’s going to appear on ESPN’s “GameDay” this Saturday before the Oregon-Washington game.
It’s yet to be confirmed if this plays out fully, but if so it could make for some awkward television.
Why would Kiffin appear on a telecast that is celebrating two thriving Pac-12 teams? Moreover, teams whose successes resulted in the ex-USC coach’s midseason departure.
Every week GameDay is good for at least one weird moment. We may have another on the horizon.
*UPDATE* According to GameDay producer Lee Fitting, Kiffin will be joining the set on Saturday at Washington.
Lane Kiffin will join @CollegeGameDay Saturday for a live exclusive interview with Chris Fowler.
