Monte Kiffin wants to make it known that he loves everything associated with the Bucs.

"You're talking about great fans," the team's defensive coordinator said after Sunday's loss. "I mean, this is like my alma mater."

Still, the draw of coaching with his son at the University of Tennessee proved irresistible. Kiffin, 68, confirmed Sunday what had been speculated for weeks: He will join son Lane at the school after the season. He said he came to a final decision a week ago and told coaches and players Wednesday.

"I went back and forth," Kiffin said. "It was a very, very hard decision because of players, our fans. When you've been in a place since 1996, you don't just jump ship. I've had other opportunities.

Warren Sapp dissed Kiffin big time on Inside the NFL a couple of weeks ago. He basically said that the one person that he respected on the defensive side of the ball was Rod Marinelli. Collinsworth was flabbergasted and tried to press Sapp for more info, but Sapp didn't bite.
