Lane Kiffin’s Ole Miss Salary Revealed
Lane Kiffin’s Ole Miss salary has been revealed.
With most of the favorites winning out during conference championship weekend, the biggest college football story that emerged was Kiffin’s hiring.
Kiffin is a very polarizing figure in the sport and there are mixed opinions on whether he will be able to turn Ole Miss around the way he did with FAU.
One party who is not doubting Kiffin’s skills is Ole Miss itself – as reflected by what the Rebels have promised to pay him.
According to Brett McMurphy, Kiffin is gettinga 5-year, $21 million contract from Ole Miss.
For what it is worth, Rebels brass thinks they are getting a steal at that price.

“I couldn’t be more excited to welcome Coach Kiffin to the Ole Miss family,” Ole Miss AD Keith Carter said.
“As we entered this process, we were looking for energy, innovativeness and a program builder who could excite our student-athletes and fans. Coach Kiffin checked every box and is a home run for our program. I look forward to locking arms with him to take Ole Miss Football to a championship level.”
Chancellor Glenn Boyce was similarly enthused.
“As an experienced head coach and one of the great offensive minds in college football, Lane Kiffin brings energetic leadership, deep understanding of the competitive landscape of the SEC and an approach to the game that will captivate Ole Miss fans,” the chancellor said.
“I am thrilled to welcome Coach Kiffin to Ole Miss and Oxford as we look ahead with great anticipation for the future of Ole Miss Football. In addition, I want to congratulate Keith Carter for the outstanding leadership he demonstrated in attracting a nationally recognized coach to our university to lead the Rebel football program.”
Will Kiffin be able to justify his high salary? We’ll find out soon enough.
