Ole Miss Rebels indicators a brand new contract with soccer coach Lane Kiffin
Ole Miss soccer coach Lane Kiffin was rewarded with a new contract after leading the Rebels to an Outback Bowl mooring and setting offensive records with the SEC in his first season.
“This is an investment in the future of Ole Miss football,” said sporting director Keith Carter in a statement on Saturday. “We hired Coach Kiffin in the hopes of revitalizing our football program and in just a short year he did just that. His innovative attacking approach shattered SEC records and with a top 20 recruiting class the future is here.” We are committed to it and provide the resources necessary to take this program to the next level. “
Ole Miss has not released any financial details on Kiffin’s new contract.
Under the terms of his original contract, the contract ran for four years and was valued at $ 16.2 million. Kiffin, 45, earned a salary of $ 3.9 million for the 2020 season, and that figure should increase by $ 100,000 each season. Mississippi state law allows university employees to have no contract for more than four years.
“I appreciate Keith’s leadership and commitment to building a successful football program,” said Kiffin. “While I’m proud of what our team has achieved this season, we have higher expectations of Ole Miss’ football. This is just the beginning and I look forward to continuing to build a championship program.”
The rebels, who finished fifth in SEC West this season, set the SEC record for all-out offensive in conference games (562.4 YPG). They ranked in the top 20 of the FBS in 10 categories including Total Offense, Scoring Offense, Rushing Offense, Passing Offense and First Downs.
Ole Miss finished the season 5-5 after beating Indiana No. 11 in the Outback Bowl on Saturday 26:20.
