Lane Kiffin asked if he looks forward to coaching Ole Miss next season: “Yes, I would.”
Kiffin also reportedly responded to his report that he was due to depart earlier this week:

Jon, this is news to me. 🤦♂️. Nice source 🚫👿🪑🍽 https://t.co/P8rdpxEk0p
Do not . 20 Ole Miss fell to 8-4 on the season after a promising 7-0 start with a 24-22 loss to Mississippi State in the Egg Bowl on Thursday night.
Kiffin, who has been at the helm of Ole Miss since 2020, is now 23-12 during his school tenure.
While Auburn’s head coaching job is more prestigious, it doesn’t sound like Kiffin is planning to leave Ole Miss anytime soon. Whether that’s just posturing or a reasonable stance until the end of the season remains to be seen.
