Ole Miss football coach Lane Kiffin has agreed to a contract extension after leading the Rebels to a 10-2 record in the regular season. The university announced the news on Saturday night.
“We are committed to winning championships at Ole Miss, and Coach Kiffin is the person to lead us to those heights,” Ole Miss athletic director Keith Carter said in a statement. “With his winning edge, offensive vision and recruiting prowess, he has quickly cemented our team among the best in the nation, and this is just the start.
“With major facility projects on the horizon, we are investing in this program like never before and look forward to building on the foundation that Coach Kiffin has established.”

Kiffin took over the Rebels in 2020 and has gone 15-7 during his two seasons in Oxford.
“We are extremely appreciative of Chancellor Glenn Boyce, Director of Athletics Keith Carter and the entire Ole Miss administration for their commitment and support of our football program,” Kiffin said. “Sustained success takes a commitment from everyone, and we are excited to continue the work to build a program that makes the entire Ole Miss community proud. I have a tremendous amount of gratitude for our fans, players, and staff. The future is bright! Hotty Toddy.”
In Kiffin’s 10 years as a college football head coach — which includes stints at Tennessee, USC, and Florida Atlantic — he has posted an all-time record of 76-41.
