What will it take to keep Kiffin around?
So we spent quite a bit of the offseason reading about the rift between Davis and Kiffin. We know Kiffin had a disappointing record in his debut with us, but he's back for another year. We know the players are behind him, even if Al may not be. We know Al wants to win first and foremost, a common goal between all involved parties (as goes without saying).
Most people seem to agree that we are poised to have our best season since 2002. We made some great moves in the offseason; Al was aggressive (a bit too much so perhaps . . . ) and we didn't have to deal with hold-outs or anything. We had a good camp, although Kiffin expressed that he wished it could continue as he wasn't completely satisfied with the results. Our first team unit has looked solid so far in the preseason. Many of the holes from last year's team have been filled, and many of our younger players have shown signs of improvement. Overall, things are looking up for the Raiders.
The question is, how many wins does Kiffin need to secure a future with Oakland (one more year, two more years, ten more years, it's all the same)?
I really want to see him back here next year, but I'm not sure whether Davis shares my feelings on the matter. Do you guys think seven wins will do it? Fewer than that and the chances are pretty slim. I'm not sure how stingy Davis will be, but if we can manage 8-8 then I expect he will bring Lane back. Is that wishful thinking?
