Report: Raiders coach Kiffin hospitalized

Aug 14, 2007 - 2:12 AM NAPA, California (Ticker) Oakland Raiders coach Lane Kiffin is resting in an area hospital Monday with a viral infection, a team spokesman told the Oakland Tribune.

Public relations director Mike Taylor said Kiffin has been feeling ill for "a couple of days" and was taken to the hospital Monday for observation.

The 32-year-old Kiffin, who is the league's youngest coach, was scheduled to speak with reporters Sunday night by conference call. The conference was canceled when Taylor said Kiffin was "under the weather."

Kiffin was hired on January 23, replacing the fired Art Shell.
