Lane Kiffin has landed in Oxford.
If you missed it on Sunday evening, the new Ole Miss coach was greeted by thousands of fans at the Oxford airport as he arrived fresh off leading FAU to the 2019 Conference USA Championship. FAU went 10-3 this season.
One Ole Miss fan even handed Kiffin his baby to kiss upon the coach’s arrival in Oxford. Here’s a link to that if you missed it.
“I am truly honored and humbled to join the Ole Miss family, and recognize this as a special opportunity to lead Rebel Football into the future,” Kiffin said upon his arrival in a release issued by Ole Miss. “I am especially grateful to Keith Carter, Chancellor Boyce and the entire Ole Miss family for their trust and confidence. Our staff and I will work tirelessly to recruit and develop successful players for this program, and I look forward to producing many exciting memories to add to Ole Miss’ storied football legacy. I am excited to get to Oxford and begin the groundwork of building a championship program that Mississippi’s flagship university deserves, and I’m thrilled to be back in the greatest athletics’ conference in the nation. Hotty Toddy!”
