Ole Miss to hire FAU’s Lane Kiffin, per report

A mere week after firing head coach Matt Luke, new athletic director Keith Carter has nabbed his guy already, making the move to name Florida Atlantic head coach Lane Kiffin as Ole Miss’ new head coach, as first reported by Rebel Grove’s Neal McCready.

Kiffin, 44 replaces Luke who just finished up a 4-8 campaign that saw the Rebels lose close game after close game an whiff on every single toss-up game that they had a chance at winning. The former head coach was just 15-21 in three seasons at the helm and a miserable 6-18 in the SEC.
