It didn’t take long for internet sleuths to dig in and find more photos of Rychlak.

So who is Rychlak? It’s unclear. She appears to work for Southern Methodist University (SMU) as a “Major Gifts Officer,” though it is unclear what that actually entails.
Before that she got a bachelor’s degree in marketing at Ole Miss and attended the university from 2015 to 2019. After that she worked at the school as a “Development Officer for the School of Pharmacy” for three years and 10 months.
Kiffin was previously married to his ex-wife, Layla, from 2004 to 2016 before the pair ultimately split.
For the most part, the Ole Miss coach has kept his relationship with Rychlak relatively low key. And that’s quite telling, given what a headline-magnet he usually is.
It’s also pretty telling of his place in the larger cultural zeitgeist that, in a week where Aaron Rodgers may or may not have hooked up with his ex, Kiffin still found a way to steal the show with his love life.

Romance aside, the looming college football season is going to be a huge one for Ole Miss. Two years ago when Kiffin went 10-3 everyone was really excited about what the future held.
Last season’s 8-5 finish dimmed enthusiasm a bit.
The question is now where Kiffin and Ole Miss go from here. An answer to that will emerge soon enough. Either way, though – Rychlak will almost certainly be at this year’s games cheering her man on every week of the season.
