Auburn coach Lane Kiffin jokes about the “pine box” in his latest press conference.
To no one’s surprise, Lane Kiffin has jokes.
The current Ole Miss coach is reportedly the No. 1 primary target for Auburn in their coaching search. As the weeks have passed since the Tigers fired Brian Harsin, Kiffin’s name has been popping up more and more on social media and in conversations throughout college football.
There is a chance Kiffin will transfer to Auburn after this weekend. His attempt to dismiss the rumors didn’t carry much weight, especially considering Ole Miss offered him an extension last week — an extension he has yet to sign.
After being asked if there are any outside distractions for the Rebel players heading to the Egg Bowl, Kiffin decided to joke:
“They don’t. They know how we operate, Kiffin said. – This is professional thinking. I am extremely happy here. I feel like we have really good support. I could give you the pine box speech. I don’t know what to say.’
The comment references what former Auburn head coach Tommy Tuberville said a little less than a week before leaving Ole Miss for the Plains in 1999. before taking a step.
Get some sleep, people. The next few days could be interesting at Auburn.
