Lane Kiffin officially named head coach at SEC school after 3-year stint at Florida Atlantic
It’s that time of year. Not only are players making decisions as to whether or not they want to return to school, head to the NFL Draft or switch schools entirely by entering the NCAA transfer portal, but coaches are coming and going, too.
Reports surfaced Friday night that Florida Atlantic head coach Lane Kiffin was taking the vacant job at Ole Miss. On Saturday night, those reports proved to be true:
Official: Lane Kiffin is back in the SEC… new head coach at Ole Miss. Buckle up.

As Bruce Feldman tweeted, Kiffin is back in the SEC. He has never been a head coach in that conference, but he did spend the 2014-16 seasons at Alabama under Nick Saban as the offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach.
The Rebels and Crimson Tide are both in the SEC West division. Kiffin and Saban facing each other is going to be regular thing?
