Lane Kiffin, who has resurrected Florida Atlantic's football program in just one season, has agreed to a new 10-year deal with the Owls. "This is further proof of FAU's unbridled ambition," FAU president John Kelly told ESPN on Tuesday. Florida Atlantic (10-3) faces Akron on Tuesday night in the Cheribundi Tart Cherry Boca Raton Bowl and has won nine straight games, capturing the Conference USA championship earlier this month. The 10 wins are the most in program history for the Owls in their 13 years as an FBS school. Before Kiffin's arrival, FAU had suffered through three straight 3-9 seasons. "We are grateful that the president and university are this excited about what we are doing here at FAU and into the future, although our focus remains completely on the team and this historic season finale tonight on ESPN," Kiffin told ESPN on Tuesday. Kelly had earlier told ESPN West Palm that the two sides were working on a new contract.
