Lane Kiffin reacts to Mississippi State hiring Mike Leach
In terms of pure entertainment value, the Egg Bowl Rivalry has skyrocketed this offseason as Lane Kiffin and Mike Leach are sure to bring an incredible amount of interest and attention to the biggest annual game in the state of Mississippi.
Just when it looked like nothing would top Kiffin’s arrival in Oxford, Mississippi State lured Leach to Starkville officially on Thursday to set up an incredible 2020 Egg Bowl in Oxford next season.
It didn’t take word of Leach’s hire long to reach Oxford as Kiffin has issued his response to the news of the day in college football.
In case you are wondering, the two coaches have faced off on the field once before as head coaches, with Leach’s Washington State team beating Kiffin’s USC squad 10-7 back in 2013.
Here’s Kiffin’s take on the bold move by Mississippi State:
