Sources have reported that Alabama offensive coordinator and former Tennessee coach Lane Kiffin will be the new head football coach at Florida Atlantic University.

The news was first reported by ESPN College Football Insider Brett McMurphy.

Kiffin's last head coaching job was at the University of Southern California before he was fired in 2013. He took that position after a surprisingly short stint at the University of Tennessee. 

ESPN.com football writer Chris Low tweeted that Kiffin will remain as Alabama's offensive coordinator throughout the College Football Playoff.

In additional to USC and Tennessee, Kiffin, age 41, has worked as the head coach of the NFL's Oakland Raiders.  

FAU fired head coach Charlie Partridge on Nov. 27 .
