State law requires that a new resident apply for an in-state license within 30 days of moving. Failure to do so is a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $50 and court costs. Kiffin was Volunteer coach for 408 days before jumping to USC, meaning he was in violation for 378 days.
Kiffin wasn't alone. His father Monte, mother Robin and wife Layla never possessed a Tennessee license, according to records.
Five Alabama students, including four members of the Student Government Association, had a trip to Pasadena paid for in violation of spending rules, the student newspaper Crimson White reported.
The students traveled to California to cook and serve food at the Union Station Homeless Services Adult Center on Jan. 6, the day before the Bowl Championship Series title game. Student leaders from Texas also took part.
The group spent $4,742.95 for the trip, which included airfare, hotel, a rental van and food stipends. Tickets to the BCS title game were an out-of-pocket expense.
It has been nine days since Lane Kiffin announced he was leaving Tennessee for USC, but Volunteer fans are not ready to let it go. A look at some of their creative work that is making the rounds in cyberspace.
Despite an economy that continues to struggle, attendance to bowl games this past season held steady, according to numbers compiled by Jon Solomon of the Birmingham News.
Although 20 games had an increase in attendance, up from only 11 the previous season, the gains were offset by big drops for the Meineke (23,323), International (17,999), Little Caesars (11,088), Hawaii (10,837) and Cotton (10,247).
Attendance to the five BCS games rose by 4,152, but that gain can be attributed to a larger venue for the title game. The Rose Bowl packed in 16,438 more fans than the Orange Bowl when it played host to the title game the previous season.
The Orange and Sugar bowls combined for a decrease of 14,136. The Texas Bowl, featured Missouri and Navy, drew a bigger audience than either the Orange or Sugar.
Another winner was the Independence between Texas A&M and Georgia, which was played on a Monday afternoon in Shreveport. It outdrew the Outback, which featured Northwestern and Auburn on a rainy New Year's Day in Tampa.
Note that figures are from box scores and those numbers often reflect the number of tickets sold rather than actual fans who attended the event.
A Knoxville attorney has filed paperwork with the City Council's Public Properties and Facilities Naming Committee to rename a wastewater treatment plant the "Lane Kiffin Sewage Center."
Drew McElroy says he wrote the $262 check for the application fee and mailed it to the City Council's Clerk last week.
"It dawned on me — Lane Kiffin told us that he hoped the fans would understand. I thought 'Well, naming the wastewater plant for him would let him know, I think very clearly, we do understand,' " McElroy said. "We want to memorialize his stay here, and I think this would be doing it appropriately."
He added: "We don't have to rename the entire facility after him, just a part of it."
