We had arrived at the key moment of Lane Kiffin?s last-ever Monday news conference as head coach of the Oakland Raiders.
The key moment was not when someone asked if Kiffin has gotten feedback about where he stands with the organization. That was the same old stuff and Kiffin had the same old answer.
?No I have not heard anything today. It?s the same story as every Monday when you ask me.?
A few minutes later someone asked this.
?How would you characterize your last conversation with Mr. Davis? Did he give you any indication of his feelings for the job you?ve been doing??
Kiffin stared ahead blandly and answered blandly.
?I?m going to kind of stop these questions here and go from here on out that conversations, or lack of conversations with Al, I?m going to keep between Al and I. I just feel we?re going to open up too many things, and those are conversations that I do or do not have with him that should stay between him and I. I apologize for that.?
?You won?t say when the last one was??
