Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin and his wife Layla announced they are seeking a divorce. Kiffin told FOX Sports’ Bruce Feldman of their plans on Sunday.

“After a lot of careful thought and consideration, Layla and I have mutually decided to divorce,” Kiffin told Feldman. “We are fully committed to our kids’ future being our No. 1 priority. We will maintain an amicable relationship with respect for each other as we raise these three wonderful children. We will have no further comments and appreciate respect for our family’s privacy.”
