Lane Kiffin reportedly finalizing deal to become next Ole Miss coach

SOURCES Ole Miss to hire Kiffin as next head coach

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.

Leafs F Johnsson leaves game with leg injury
Nathan MacKinnon , Valeri Nichushkin and Joonas Donskoi scored for the Avalanche (17-8-2), who have won four games in a row. Johnsson sustained the injury late in the second period when he blocked a shot from Avalanche defenceman Ryan Graves.

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.
