Mizzou coach Eli Drinkwitz turned 38 years old on Monday. The second-year coach of the Tigers is the youngest head football coach in the SEC.

SEC Network host Paul Finebaum posted a birthday message to Drinkwitz on Twitter, and Drinkwitz had some fun at the expense of Lane Kiffin.

Even though Tennessee’s Josh Heupel (43) and South Carolina’s Shane Beamer (44) are both younger than the Ole Miss coach, who is 45, Drinkwitz said he though Kiffin would be jealous of his birthday wish from Finebaum:

Kiffin, of course, had a great reply ready to go for Drinkwitz, as you can see below:


Both Drinkwitz and Kiffin seem like fun coaches. Here’s hoping they continue to keep things light in the coming years! And happy birthday to Drinkwitz!
