It took less than 24 hours for Lane Kiffin to make some headlines as Florida Atlantic's new coach.

The Owls are signing former Florida State quarterback De'Andre Johnson, according to a report from 247Sports.

Before Johnson was a three-star recruit from East Mississippi Community College, he was the state's Mr. Football at Jacksonville First Coast. But you probably recognize the name for a different reason.

FSU dismissed him from the team in July 2015 after authorities released a video of him punching a woman in the face at a Tallahassee bar. Johnson was charged with misdemeanor battery in the incident.
