Florida Atlantic University and head football coach Lane Kiffin reached an agreement Tuesday on a 10-year contract extension.

"This is further proof of FAU's unbridled ambition", Florida Atlantic president Dr. John Kelly told ESPN on Tuesday.

Following the incredible season that Kiffin had with the Owls in his first year at the helm, he was not considered for any of the major Power 5 jobs that were open, and soon it was evident he would be returning to FAU for the 2018 season. He received a new 10-year deal with his school, and his Owls prepared to face Akron in the Boca Raton Bowl. Kiffin's 10 wins in his first season in Boca have already made him the second-winningest coach in school history. With the given point spread of -22.5 in favor of FAU, expect the Owls to show no mercy. Gilbert is a first-team all-Mid-American Conference selection who has recorded more than 120 tackles each of the last two seasons. Second-year head coach Jason Candle was a hot interview target during the recent run of coaching hires, but remains at UT. He was sacked in his second season with the Oakland Raiders, left after one year at Tennessee for the USC job and then was sacked during his fourth season with the Trojans in 2013.

The Lane Train will be making an extended stop in Boca Raton. CMU wrapped up the 2017 season on a five-game winning streak as QB Shane Morris (2,908 yards/26 TD) got hot.

YouTube reportedly launching its Music Service in March
The display language for the music streaming service will be available in English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, and Japanese. You might be able to find music on YouTube , but the company has chose to release a dedicated platform only for music streaming.

After skipping out on Tennessee after one season in Knoxville, Kiffin was sacked from his dream job, Southern California.

"Our team has not been the most dominant team at times", Bowden said, "but our team has been this season one of my favorite teams in 24 years as a head coach, a team that fights and finds a way to win ballgames that many think they can't win".

"We're obviously looking toward keeping Lane long term". We expected to win the conference championship, and we expected to play in a premier bowl like this.
