Ole Miss announces extension for offensive coordinator Jeff Lebby
Ole Miss’ high-powered offense led the Rebels to four SEC wins and an Outback Bowl victory over No. 7 Indiana in Year 1 under Lane Kiffin. The program is making sure things stay that way in Oxford.
Days after extending Kiffin, the school announced that offensive coordinator Jeff Lebby has also been extended with a new two-year deal.
“Coach Lebby did an incredible job managing our offense and preparing Matt (Corral) every game,” Kiffin said in the announcement. “Coach Lebby brings the innovative mentality we want in our program, and we look forward to building on the historic success of this season’s offense.”
Ole Miss broke the SEC record for total offense in conference games (562.4 yards per game), besting LSU’s mark of 550.0 yards per game set during the Tigers’ 2019 national championship campaign. The Rebels ranked top-20 in the country in 10 offensive categories, including total offense, scoring offense (40.7), rushing offense (217.7), passing offense (344.8), passing yards per completion (14.99), team passing efficiency (183.5), completion percentage (.714), first downs (249), third-down conversions (.504) and kick return defense (17.1).
Kiffin hired Lebby away from UCF where he spent the 2018 season as quarterbacks coach before a promotion to offensive coordinator for the 2019 season.
