Source: Lane Kiffin's in-law questioned
By Joe Schad ESPN
The NCAA interviewed New Mexico quarterbacks coach and passing game coordinator David Reaves Tuesday morning about the recruiting practices of former Tennessee coach Lane Kiffin and the staff when he was with the Volunteers, a source said.
Reaves is the brother-in-law of Kiffin, now the USC coach. Kiffin, who married David's sister, Layla, opted not to take Reaves with him to USC.
Reaves said at the time he didn't know Kiffin was leaving Tennessee.
The source said Reeves, as part of a broadened NCAA inquiry, was asked about Tennessee recruiting hostesses having attended recruits' high school games, calls to prospects during an all-star game and recruiting weekends.
