Lane Kiffin reportedly finalizing deal to become next Ole Miss coach

SAN ANTONIO TX- NOVEMBER 23 Florida Atlantic University Owls head coach Lane Kiffin watches action during conference USA game against the UTSA Roadrunners

Kiffin, who informed FAU's team of his move following the game, recorded 10 or more wins in two seasons and finished with a 26-13 record. The elder Kiffin also spent three seasons as Alabama's offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach too, so the family is familiar with SEC territory.

Kiffin also reportedly met with Arkansas this week about its coaching vacancy, but the family is Oxford-bound. Kiffin departed Alabama just days before the Tide played Clemson in the 2016 College Football Playoff championship game.

"I'm never going to apologize for having fun". He was also head coach of the NFL's Oakland Raiders in 2007-08, going 5-15 before he was sacked four games into his second season. He says Kiffin will arrive in Oxford on Sunday, a day after FAU's conference championship game, and be announced as their head coach on Monday. He went 7-6 during his only season with the Vols, which featured plenty of fireworks both on and off the field.

Kiffin is in his third season at Florida Atlantic and has coached them to the Conference USA Championship Game twice. Coach Kiffin checked every box and is a home run for our program. The Florida Atlantic University coach is allegedly finalizing a deal to become the next coach for the Ole Miss Rebels, according to ESPN.

Rights groups were outraged that the suspects never got a chance to face trial and accused the police of acting like a lynch mob. Instead of investigation and prosecution the state is committing murders to distract public and avoid accountability", she said.

Kiffin replaces Matt Luke, who was sacked last Sunday after three seasons and a 15-21 record. With the Trojans facing heavy NCAA sanctions, Kiffin went 28-15 at USC and was sacked five games into his fourth season following a loss to Arizona State. The Rebels went 4-8 in 2019, ending their season with a 21-20 loss to Mississippi State on Thanksgiving night.

Kiffin becomes the fifth current SEC head coach who has served as an assistant for Saban.

The official announcement was made on Ole Miss' Twitter account.
