Ryan Kiffin ex-wife; dating anyone now?
Lane and his wife were once considered an ideal couple. However, due to unfortunate changes, the marriage could not last more than ten years.
The Lincoln, Nebraska native first met Leila Kiffin (Greer Reaves) in 1999 through his father, Mount, who was the NFL defensive coordinator. The romance between the two soon blossomed and the couple got engaged after just three months of dating.
Lane even asked Layla’s father’s approval before proposing to Layla. Layla’s father, Dan Reaves, spoke about Lane’s proposal in an old interview,
“I thought he was going to say he was quitting coaching and wanted a job. Instead, he asked if he could marry my daughter. I called her and asked her, ‘Is he serious?’ I shouldn’t spoil this Surprise. They bought an engagement ring on the same day.”
Lane and his wife Layla Kiffin finally married on July 1, 2004. A year after their marriage, Layla gave birth to her first child, a daughter named Landry. Two years later, the couple became parents to their second daughter, Presley.
In 2009, Lane and his wife welcomed their first son, named Knox after Knoxville.

Lane and his wife live happily with their children and celebrate different occasions together. For example, on January 3, 2012, Ryan tweeted his wishes for his wife’s 37th birthday. He tweeted,
“Happy 37 Laila!”
However, by August 2015, rumors began to circulate that Ryan had an extramarital affair and even had physical contact with Kristen, daughter of University of Alabama head coach Nick Saban.

Gossip spread like wildfire, and the internet was full of trolls mocking Lane for his extramarital affair. Even his Wikipedia page was edited by an unknown user to mock the former USC head coach.
Although the rumors were never confirmed, they eventually reached Layla’s ears before she boldly filed for divorce on February 28, 2016, citing irreconcilable differences.
Talking about the couple’s decision to divorce, Lane told fox sports,
“After much deliberation, Laila and I have jointly decided to divorce. We are fully committed to making the future of our children our number one priority. As we ask these questions, we will remain friendly and respectful of our three wonderful children. We will no longer comment and appreciate respecting our family’s privacy.”
Lane Kiffin’s wife even asked for a spouse as a divorce settlement and was ordered to pay 34.5 per cent of her gross income. Ryan later stepped away from offensive coordinator duties, which created financial problems for him. He even said in an interview with Pete Thamel,
“I paid about 52% in taxes. Layla got 34.5% in the divorce, and [agent Jimmy Sexton] Get 3%.I do [about] 9%, I live in Tuscaloosa. “
Despite the divorce, Lane’s relationship with his ex-wife remains strong, and Laila sometimes even tags her ex-husband in social media posts.
On October 2, 2016, Laila shared a photo with her kids and reminded Ryan that their kids were the most important trophies he could get.
