Ole Miss Rebels’ Lane Kiffin Rated Most Likable Coach in College Football
OXFORD (Miss.) — If you don’t like the Tennessee Volunteers, then you will probably find Lane Kiffin Ole Miss Rebels coach a very likable man.
Kiffin was once a villain for his previous stints, but he has since made a comeback with Ole Miss .. Kiffin is a popular character in college football, whether he is taking his recruits on a joyride, trolling rivals on Twitter, or dropping his clipboard across the sideline.
BigGame Boomer declared that Kiffin was the most likable coach in America on Friday via Twitter.
Kiffin was rated No. 1 on Big Game Boomer’s Top 25 most likable coaches list and responded to the rankings with his go-to ‘rat poison’ emojis.
Five other coaches from the Southeastern Conference made it to the likable list, including Arkansas Razorbacks coach Sam Pittman. 2), South Carolina Gamecocks coach Shane Beamer (No. 4), Mississippi State Bulldogs coach Mike Leach (No. 6), Nick Saban, Alabama Crimson Tide coach (No. 9), and Nick Saban, Alabama Crimson Tide coach (No. 13).

Ironically, Texas A&M Aggies coach Jimbo Fisher was ranked the No. 1 most unlikable coach in college football.
Kiffin and Fisher do not see eye-to-eye on NIL recruitment and the two started a small feud during the offseason which culminated last Saturday when Ole Miss beat Texas A&M 31-28 in Kyle Field. After the game, Kiffin won the victory and Fisher was the last to laugh when he called out Fisher.
