(ESPN) – Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin has agreed to become Florida Atlantic’s next football coach, sources told ESPN.

Kiffin had been engaging in back-and-forth talks with the Conference USA school since last Friday, sources said. At one point, negotiations between the two sides stalled, but a deal was struck early Monday morning, sources said.

Kiffin will remain Alabama’s offensive coordinator throughout the College Football Playoff, Tide head coach Nick Saban confirmed Monday, similar to what former defensive coordinator Kirby Smart did last season after taking the Georgia head-coaching job.

Saban said Kiffin has done a “phenomenal job” in his three years as offensive coordinator at Alabama.
