Less than a week after his offense scored 52 points on the Southern California program he once coached, Alabama football assistant Lane Kiffin was rewarded financially.

Alabama's board of trustees on Friday approved an immediate raise and slight extension, increasing Kiffin's salary from $714,000 to $1.4 million. The $1.4 million will be paid in the eight months that began on July 1 and run through Feb. 28, 2017.

Kiffin, who coached USC to a 28-15 record from 2010 until getting fired five games into the 2013 season, was hired as Nick Saban's offensive coordinator in January 2014. He signed a three-year deal that paid him $680,000 for each of the first two seasons and $714,000 this season.

In addition to that three-year agreement, Kiffin also received a severance from USC, but those payments ended June 30.
