Lane Kiffin becoming the Florida Gators next head coach promises a payout of $500 on every $100 bet.  Blake Toppmeyer and John Adams of USA Today say he's the ideal fit even though it is Louisiana's Billy Napier who is currently favored by the oddsmakers.

Toppmeyer's pitch: "Get the image of a young, immature Tennessee Vols coach who took shots at Urban Meyer's recruiting tactics out of your mind. Kiffin has matured and proven himself a winner. He's a bright offensive mind, which suits Florida well. Plus, he laid groundwork in Florida by leading Florida Atlantic to two Conference USA titles in three seasons. Now in his second season at Ole Miss, the Rebels are positioned for a New Year's Six bowl selection."

Adams' response: "Kiffin is the perfect fit for Florida. He'd be the second coming of Steve Spurrier."

As for Napier, the The Ragin' Cajuns are headed to the Sun Belt Championship game for the fourth time in Napier's four-year tenure.

"Not a terrible candidate," an unthusiastic Adams responded. "Not great, either. I'd feel more comfortable with Napier if I saw him prove himself as a Power Five head coach first."

LSU has considered Napier among their top three candidates.  That program may prove more appealing, especially being that the school is right down the road from where Napier currently coaches.
