REPORT: Ole Miss to Hire FAU’s Lane Kiffin As Next Head Football Coach


OXFORD, Miss. (WCBI) — A new era of Ole Miss football could be introduced just a week after Athletic Director Keith Carter released a statement that Matt Luke would not return for the Rebels.

That new era might potentially include the current head football coach of Florida Atlantic University, Lane Kiffin.
