Lane Kiffin, Alabama’s former offensive coordinator from 2014 to 2016, will enter his fourth season as Ole Miss’ head coach next fall. Mississippi finished this season at 8-4 and will play Texas Tech in the TexAct Texas Bowl on Wednesday, Dec. 28. Kiffin hilariously spotted Coach Saban’s plane on a recruiting trip and posted a photo to Twitter. He is about his business on the recruiting trail, but Kiffin knows Saban is about his too. The early period for National Signing Day is Wednesday, Dec. 21.

Saban and the Tide start Sugar Bowl prep Friday for Kansas State.
