Shanahan: Al David Like Lane Kiffin More

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Broncos coach Mike Shanahan cracked a couple of jokes Wednesday about his old boss, Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis, after Davis fired Raiders coach Lane Kiffin this week.

Davis fired Shanahan four games into the 1989 season. Shanahan says Davis must have liked kiffin more, since kiffin lasted 616 days with the Raiders, 34 more days than Shanahan.

Shanahan was 8-12 with Oakland while Kiffin was 5-15.

Shanahan says Davis never paid him $250,000 he was owed under his contract. Davis is refusing to pay Kiffin the rest of his salary, too. Davis claims he doesn't have to because Kiffin was fired for cause.
