Ole Miss head coach Lane Kiffin agreed to a contract extension with the school on Tuesday.

Terms of the deal were not announced for Kiffin, who has guided the Rebels to a pair of 10-win seasons in the last three years. He owns a 33-15 record at Ole Miss and has led the program to a bowl game in each of his four seasons at the helm.

“Our football program is experiencing unprecedented success under Coach Kiffin, and we could not be more excited about what the future holds under his leadership,” said Keith Carter, vice chancellor for intercollegiate athletics.

“In just four years, he has established our team as a sustained winner that is on a trajectory to championship status. With our continued investment in the program and the tremendous support of the Grove Collective, the Ole Miss family is committed to providing Coach Kiffin the resources needed to compete at an elite level.”

The Rebels (10-2) have a chance to record their first 11-win season in program history on Dec. 30 when they face Penn State in the Peach Bowl.

“We’re doing things here that have never been done before, and with the commitment that our leadership and supporters are making, we have the opportunity to build on the foundation that has been established over the last four years,” Kiffin said. “I’m grateful to Chancellor (Glenn) Boyce and Keith for their support, and we look forward to continuing on our path to becoming a championship program.”

Kiffin, 48, owns a 95-49 coaching record with Tennessee (2009), Southern California (2010-13), Florida Atlantic (2017-19) and Ole Miss. He also went 5-15 during a stint with the then-Oakland Raiders (2007-08).
