per Bleacher Report it is a 5 year deal..


Recruiting in the state of Florida is going to be insane with Davis (FIU), Fisher (FSU); McElwain (UF); Richt (UM), Strong (USF), Frost (UCF), Kiffin (FAU)

This is big for the rivalry. Interesting to see how Butch's hire led to a splashy hire for FAU. Felt like they did not want to fall behind no matter the cost. This should lead to the most interesting Shula Bowl ever. I'm excited and wish our Owl friends luck except when they get demolished by the Panthers! 8)

It's a tremendous hire for FAU. I can't believe they actually landed him. I'm not saying he is Saban, but he is a huge upgrade from their previous coach. It ain't going to make recruiting for FIU any easier....

The rivalry just got amped up. Good for FAU, as I stated in other places. The Butch Davis Effect made them make the move to hire this type of coach. The bar has been raised all over South Florida. It's time to recruit and win some games/championships now.

Shula Bowls and UM games are gonna be wild. Go Panthers!

As I said on another thread Kifflin absolutely sucks as a gameday coach. He's just lucky his dad was a famous coach

He will recruit well and this hire along wth Butch raises the prestige of the entire conference. That's a big high five to FAU.

The recruiting alone will make them competitive for a year or 2 till he leaves.

I would be happy if both our schools are getting Top 25 votes.
