Lane Kiffin shoots down rumors he’s heading to Auburn

The “news” broke Monday evening that Lane Kiffin is planning to leave Ole Miss on Friday to take the head coaching position at Auburn.

However, the man himself, Lane Kiffin, responded on Twitter “that’s news to me … Nice sources.”

There’s the Egg Bowl on Thursday between the Rebels and Mississippi State.

Kiffin seems to be more focused on the annual rivalry game than an exit strategy from Oxford.
