Report: Lane Kiffin to leave Ole Miss for Auburn, Kiffin publicly denies report

OXFORD, Miss. –Less than 72 hours away from Ole Miss hosting Mississippi State in the Egg Bowl, WCBI Sports Director Jon Sokoloff is reporting that Ole Miss head football coach Lane Kiffin is leaving Oxford to take the same position at Auburn.

According to the report, Kiffin plans to make if official on Friday, but also claims the Tigers haven’t officially offered the job to anyone yet.

However, Kiffin is publicly denying the report on Twitter.

For context, Sokoloff just recently broke the story about John Cohen leaving Mississippi State to become the new athletic director at Auburn, and that proved to be true.

Kiffin has a record of 23-10 during his time with the Rebels.
