Back in 2008, Lane Kiffin could have been the Arkansas head coach.
Arkansas instead hired away Atlanta Falcons and then-former Louisville Cardinals head coach Bobby Petrino. He would go on to turn Arkansas into one of the SEC West’s better programs, until he lost his job after the scandal following his motorcycle accident.

Last season, Kiffin went 11-3 in his first year with the Owls.
