Lane Kiffin has already started generating headlines as the Florida Atlantic University head coach by recruiting and signing former four-star Florida State University quarterback DeAndre Johnson. Johnson most recently played QB at East Mississippi Community College after being kicked off the Florida State Seminoles’ football team. Video emerged of Johnson hitting a women and swift action was taken by the Seminoles.
Johnson is expected to compete for the starting quarterback job in what could be a very high powered offense led by Lane Kiffin. Johnson was a “Mr. Football” coming out of Jacksonville, Florida before he made a terrible decision by raising his hand and hurting a woman. At East Mississippi Community College, Johnson threw 2,646 yards and 26 touchdowns for a team that has recently been featured on a Netflix documentary. Johnson will have three years of eligibility remaining after he enrolls at FAU in January.
FAU already so much better with Lane Kiffin and his first recruit Deandre Johnson
