Report: Kiffin not among Nebraska finalists


November is reporting that Nebraska has narrowed the list of candidates for its vacant coaching job to University of Buffalo coach Turner Gill and LSU defensive coordinator Bo Pelini.

The report can be found here.

Bucs defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin didn't confirm nor deny interest in the job, which has been open since Bill Callahan was fired on Saturday. But Kiffin played and coached at Nebraska and his name was mentioned during the school's last coaching search. He seemed intrigued during interviews in recent days.

Kiffin's son, Lane, fueled speculation when he mentioned in a recent interview that his father would have taken the job back in 2003 and still might if offered. But if either of the two reported finalists accept, it doesn't seem the call will come.
