BOCA RATON — Between his Twitter antics and his coaching style, high school players have quickly taken to Lane Kiffin. Those same players will have a chance to meet and learn from the Florida Atlantic coach this summer.
Owls tight ends coach Clint Trickett, one of Kiffin’s first hires last year and a former starting quarterback at Florida State and West Virginia, announced on Twitter that the program will host seven camp days this June as part of the “Lane Kiffin Football Camp.”
“We are looking forward to the Lane Kiffin Football Camps this summer,” a statement from Kiffin reads. “Players who attend the camp will learn the fundamentals of football as well as new techniques they can take with them and use during their upcoming season in their path to a championship. Make this your best season yet! See you all this summer in paradise!”
Kiffin held a similar event his first summer at FAU, hosting a satellite camp which featured Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh and now-Florida State coach Willie Taggart among others. Kiffin’s predecessor, Charlie Partridge, held a camp in 2016 alongside Ohio State coach Urban Meyer.
FAU has yet to announce what other schools, if any, will take part in these camps.
