Lane Kiffin Fined $25K for Criticizing Officials After Ole Miss' Loss to Auburn

The SEC announced it fined Ole Miss head football coach $25,000 after he criticized the officiating in the Rebels' 35-28 loss to Auburn last Saturday.

At issue was the kickoff after Jerrion Ealy's touchdown run in the fourth quarter. Auburn running back Shaun Shivers appeared to touch the ball before it went into the end zone for a touchback. After the game, Kiffin retweeted a post about the controversy.

The SEC concluded that the play should have been reviewed, justifying Kiffin's criticism. However, his social media actions still warranted a fine.
