Ranking The 25 Best College Football Head Coaches Right Now

24. Lane Kiffin — Ole Miss

Kiffin knows how to coach offense — and he knows how to recruit. The former USC head man seemingly has gotten humbled in recent years. That’ll happen when you go from head coach of the (then) Oakland Raiders to running the Florida Atlantic program. This perspective seemingly has done Kiffin a ton of good. He’s now a more likable, seemingly down-to-Earth figure. In the process, he took the Ole Miss job with the hopes of turning it into a threat in the loaded SEC West. He’s led Ole Miss to Bowl Games in each of his three seasons, and has finished in the top-30 in scoring every year. With former USC passer Jaxson Dart at the helm, Kiffin and the Rebels are looking to make a run for the top of the toughest division in the nation.
