According to Timmy MacMahon JJ confidant Larry Lacewell has no problems with the Cowboys' interest in Monte Kiffin:
The Cowboys met with Kiffin at Valley Ranch on Thursday, and Lacewell assumes his old friend will officially become Rob Ryan’s replacement soon.
"Frankly, I think it’s the best hire the Cowboys have ever made," Lacewell told ESPNDallas.com on Friday morning. "Well, other than Jimmy [Johnson]."
Lacewell also "completely dismisses the mediocre results Kiffin got as the defensive coordinator on his son Lane’s USC staff, saying Kiffin did the best he could do despite talent issues that stem in part from NCAA-sanctioned recruiting restrictions. Lacewell, who visited USC last summer during an off day in the Cowboys’ training camp, said Kiffin is as passionate and energetic as ever."
