Lane Kiffin has agreed on a new contract with Ole Miss. In a season where rumors had Kiffin reportedly accepting the job at Auburn, it seems the Rebel fanbase can finally breathe.

Kiffin’s contract is set for six years with a rollover to 7, averaging around $9 million per year.

Kiffin has guided the Rebels to a 23-12 record in his 3 seasons in Oxford, including a 10-win season in 2021. Ole Miss won 8 games this season.

Vice Chancellor for Intercollegiate Athletics Keith Carter spoke on Kiffin’s new contract Tuesday in a statement.

“Coach Kiffin is establishing a program that can sustain success and contend for championships,” Carter said. “We are investing in our football program like never before. The greatly increased salary pool for assistant coaches and support staff is competitive with any of our peers, and from a facility standpoint, the $45 million renovation of the Manning Center will conclude this summer. In addition, the remarkable support of Rebel Nation has produced tremendous momentum in NIL. We will continue to equip Coach Kiffin with these and the other resources necessary to compete and win at the highest level and build on the accomplishments of the last three seasons.”
