Lane Kiffin is coming off a decent campaign with Ole Miss that saw his Rebels go 11-2 and finish second in the SEC West to Alabama.
In addition to that, Ole Miss is a contender to swoop in and steal the most highly sought-after young quarterback in the nation.
Unfortunately, while things are going Kiffin’s way as far as football-related matters go – the same doesn’t apply to his personal life.
This week, a report surfaced revealing that Kiffin and his girlfriend, Sally Rychlak, have broken up.
“Lane and Sally broke up a few days ago,” a source informed TMSPN.com.
Rychlak became something of a beloved figure over the past year as her relationship with Kiffin became public knowledge.
Because of that, news of her split from Kiffin and questions about what caused it have been circulating online.
To date, neither Kiffin nor Rychlak have provided a reason for their breakup.
That said, while Kiffin continues to play it coy regarding his relationship status, the Ole Miss coach did take to social media this week to share something of a thoughtful message.
“For those of you that may have something holding you back from being the best version of yourself,” he said regarding his decision to stop drinking a few years back.

“I encourage you that you can do it! It may seem simple but not easy, but it definitely will be worth it. We only have one shot at this life on earth. Go be the best you can be. #NoLookingBack. [Three] years today.”
Kiffin is a fascinating personality with a propensity for going viral.
What will the Ole Miss ultimately make headlines for next? Time will tell.
