Lane Kiffin said he apologized to Ole Miss’ starting quarterback Jaxon Dart’s mother after Alabama defeated Ole Miss Saturday in Oxford.
Kiffin told media members Monday he talked to Dart’s mother after a reporter asked him about ‘missed calls’ in the Rebels’ loss to Alabama.
“The Jackson part and after the whistle stuff is disappointing,” said Kiffin. “Talked to his mom, just kind of apologize even though it’s out of our control. It’s like she mentioned, just a shame her son gets treated different based off what SEC program that he’s at on game day and protected different. So, is what it is, and we move on.”
