TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -

The University of Alabama has hired Lane Kiffin as its new offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

Kiffin and the university agreed on a three-year deal, according to a source.

Kiffin was fired as head coach at USC in late September.

Kiffin led the Trojans to a 28-15 record in three-plus seasons with the program.

Before arriving at USC, Kiffin was head coach at the University of Tennessee.  He was with the Volunteers for one season and finished with a 7-6 record.

Kiffin spent a week in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, last month observing Alabama's offense and the Tide's coaching staff.

Kiffin replaces Doug Nussmeier who left Alabama to become the new offensive coordinator at Michigan.
