FAU hired Kiffin, son of legendary defensive National Football League and college coach Monte Kiffin, after he did time as Alabama's offensive coordinator under Nick Saban. The Zips won the first bowl game in school history in 2015, defeating Utah State, 23-21. But in Boca Raton, Florida, they are playing the "Son" Bowl. He'll work hard to rebuild his reputation as a head coach, and then he'll blow out of town like a leaf in a tornado the moment a more lucrative opportunity at a bigger program arrives. Gilbert is a first-team all-Mid-American Conference selection who has recorded more than 120 tackles each of the last two seasons.
The Owls, at 10-3, have already set a program record for single-season wins entering Tuesday night's game against Akron (7-6), the MAC East division champion.

"He has kind of been the difference for us the last two or three games", Bowden said.
After skipping out on Tennessee after one season in Knoxville, Kiffin was sacked from his dream job, Southern California. As a head coach, his longest stop was also at USC, where he was sacked five games into his fourth season.
For the younger Kiffin, success has come a lot quicker than expected - except for Kiffin himself. They're hungry, and every time we win, it's like they've just won the Super Bowl.
