Kiffin still in contact with young Raiders QB?

To quote a famous 50’s sitcom “Lucy, you got some splainin’ to do.” It appears that recently fired Oakland Raiders coach Lane Kiffin is still trying to coach JaMarcus Russell.

In a report in the Contra Costa Times Kiffin has spoken to the youg quarterback as early as this past Monday. I am sure this is something Raiders owner Al Davis is none to happy or comfortable about.

According to a quote by Russell “He just called and talked to me about their defense, things he would do if he was here,” Russell said. “So nothing’s really changed.”

Russell goes on to say about his former coach “he (Kiffin)has got a lot of off-time on his hands, so he would pay attention to the defense I would have to go up against, (he) leaves me a text message or a voice mail here or there.”

The Raiders are preparing to battle the New Orleans Saints this week.
