INDIANAPOLIS – We have a Lane Kiffin sighting.
He was out on the town after a day of scouting and interviewing players at the NFL Combine.
Depending on who is talking, Kiffin is either the embattled head coach or simply going about his business as head coach of the Oakland Raiders with no problems at all.
Naturally Kiffin didn’t want to discuss what’s gone on the last two months. But he was in good spirits, having a good time at a couple of downtown Indianapolis night spots and spending time with his father, Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin.
There will be more to come on Kiffin later.
Other tidbits from the day in Indy:
A rival defensive line coach for a job well done with the Raiders’ maligned offensive line congratulated raiders offensive line coach Tom Cable.
That coach was Detroit’s Joe Cullen.
Cullen, in case you forgot, was arrested the night before the Raiders played Detroit in an exhibition game Aug. 24, 2006 when he was spotted in his SUV at a fast-food drive-thru window naked at the wheel.
This led to Detroit Jon Kitna’s Halloween costume for 2007.
*There’s been a lot of talk of character issues when it comes to Arkansas running back Darren McFadden.
He made mention of possible paternity issues when addressing the media and may have two kids on the way according to a team executive.
One woudl be due in July, the other would be due in August.
Guess that beats him getting into fights at nightclubs.
It’s almost 4 a.m. local time. Check back in a few hours. And if you’re up when this is posted this instead of out having a good time or sleep, you might be at the Combine, too.
Or need to do what this beat writer needs to do: GET SOME SLEEP!!!!
If you are awake, here's my story on the 40-yard dash.

Goodnight (morning) now.
