The official account threw shade at Florida Atlantic University Head Football Coach Lane Kiffin yesterday.

Comedian Daniel Tosh tweeted at the university, asking if he would need extra security just in case people mistake him for the former UT football coach. The university replied: “Who?”

Tosh has impersonated Kiffin on his Comedy Central TV show in the past with his skit “Kiffin’s Krimson Korner.” He will be stopping in Knoxville as a part of his comedy tour on April 21 at the Knoxville Coliseum.

Kiffin left his head coach position with the Vols after one season. He accepted a job at the University of Southern California, but was later fired. He worked as Alabama’s offensive coordinator before accepting his current job at FAU.

We will let you decide if Tosh and Kiffin look a like…
