Lane Kiffin may (or may not) be the next head coach of the Houston Cougars. On Thursday USA Today reported Houston was set to name Kiffin as Tom Herman’s replacement. That report has been denied to various reporters, but Twitter went “peak Twitter” when the news leaked.
Here’s a sampling of the best reactions from around the web:

Lane Kiffin will probably leave UH faster than Herman did.

Houston might as well attach Lane Kiffin's office name plate with velcro.

REPORTS: Houston to hire Lane Kiffin.
I'm surprised he's going to a team called the Cougars. I thought he preferred daughters, not mothers

Why do people think letting Lane Kiffin be a head coach is a good idea? #houston

Tom Herman to Lane Kiffin is a hellacious downgrade for Houston.

Looking forward to Houston getting the actual death penalty under Kiffin.

If you read #LaneKiffin's career backwards it makes a lot more sense: Houston, Bama OC, USC, TN, Oakland Raiders.

Gonna be fun watching #LaneKiffin kiss his players at Houston on his way to getting fired again.

So I think it’s safe to say Twitter is not on board with the hire.
