There are very few coaches in college football who share their opinions as freely as Lane Kiffin.
He has been known to troll other coaches on social media and has always been good for a sound bite.
Today he lived up to his reputation and took a shot at one of his SEC rivals while discussing one of his team’s incoming transfers.
This offseason, Kiffin and the Ole Miss Rebels landed former 5-star receiver Chris Marshall in he transfer portal. Marshall previously played for Texas A&M.
While discussing Marshall, Kiffin took a shot at the way A&M runs their offense.
Wow, Lane Kiffin not holding back talking about WR Chris Marshall transitioning from A&M to Ole Miss.
"Instead of a program where you huddle and wait 35 seconds to snap it, we've got to get him to get the ball to the official … we've got to teach him to do things our way."

The Aggies were one of college football’s worst offenses last season, ranking outside the top 100 in points per game.
Ole Miss was a whole lot better on that side of the ball. They averaged the nation’s 29th most points per game in 2022 with an average of 33.5.
The Rebels also averaged about 37 more passing yards per game than the Aggies.
Marshall struggled to make an impact as a freshman at A&M. He made just 11 catches for 108 yards in 6 games for the Aggies.
He shouldn’t have that same issue as he heads to Mississippi for his sophomore season.
The Rebels are looking to replace the production of Jonathan Mingo, who racked up 51 catches for 861 yards last season before heading to the draft.
Marshall should be a big part of the plan to fill that void.
If he doesn’t, this will surely be a quote that A&M and their fans will remember when they head to Mississippi to take on Lane Kiffin and the Rebels in November.
