Ole Miss coach Lane Kiffin received a significant raise after leading the Rebels to a 5-5 campaign in 2020, according to a report.

Kiffin signed an extension with Ole Miss before its bowl game back in January, and the Jackson Clarion-Ledger obtained the details of that contract on Thursday.

Per the report, Kiffin is now set to make $4.5 million for the 2021 season. He will also receive a $500,000 bonus if he remains with the Rebels through the end of the season. That represents a $1 million increase over his previously-planned $4 million salary for this upcoming season.

Here’s how his salary breaks down over the next four years:

  • 2021: $4.5 million
  • 2022: $5.25 million
  • 2023: $5.5 million
  • 2024: $5.75 million

Including the retention bonus, Kiffin is now set to receive an annual raise of $250,000. Under his previous contract, his annual raise was $100,000, per the report.

It’s possible Kiffin could be looking at another raise after next season, too. Mississippi law prevents public employees for being under contract for longer than four years.

Ole Miss’ 5-5 season included a win over Mississippi State and one-score losses to LSU and Auburn. The Rebels also scored victories over Kentucky, Vanderbilt, South Carolina and Indiana.

Ole Miss opens its 2021 season with Louisville on Sept. 6.
