It’s no secret that Tennessee fans don’t like Lane Kiffin. And it’s no secret that comedian Daniel Tosh, who hosts “Tosh.O” on Comedy Central, looks like the Volunteers’ former coach.

Tosh is going on a college tour starting in April that will include a stop in Knoxville (and also stops at Georgia, LSU and Texas A&M). Thus, he decided to have a bit of fun at Kiffin’s expense.

To its credit, the school played along.

Tosh has made Kiffin part of his show. He impersonated the then-Alabama offensive coordinator in a bit where he was taking offensive (i.e., expletive) calls on a public-access TV show.

Kiffin went 7-6 in his lone season with the Vols in 2009. He now is the new coach at Florida Atlantic. Maybe Tosh will mention Kiffin’s interesting career path – from the Oakland Raiders to Tennessee to USC to FAU – during his Knoxville show.
