UPDATE: Ole Miss announced Lane Kiffin’s official hiring as the new football coach following his final game at FAU.

Lane Kiffin is officially the new football coach at Ole Miss.

After initial reports coming out Friday night (which I was first on), ESPN aired footage Saturday morning of Kiffin’s young son being informed that he had accepted the job in Oxford. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

In the video, he’s told they’re showing up on Monday.

There it is, folks. I said yesterday it was going to happen, a deal was being neared and the chips quickly fell into place.

Now, ESPN has shown his child being informed. This is awesome.

I hope like hell Lane Kiffin tears it up for the Rebels. From speaking with people down there, I can tell you for a fact fans of Ole Miss are excited.

Kiffin hasn’t even been announced yet, and the fans are going wild. I can’t wait to see some contract details.

Ole Miss must have paid him a fortune to not go to Arkansas.
