Lane Kiffin’s contract at Ole Miss is a four-year deal, starting at $3.9 million for the 2020 season, according to a tweet from Brian Scott Rippee that includes a memo laying out the details of the deal.
Kiffin will make an additional $100k each season after that – $4 million in 2021, $4.1 million in 2022 and $4.2 million in 2023. To put that in perspective, when Lane was hired at FAU, he made $950k, and averaged about $1 million over his three years in Boca.
Before leaving Alabama for Boca, while he was still collecting his buyout from being fired at USC, Kiffin made about $3.4 million during his first season in Tuscaloosa, with $680k coming from the Tide and the remaining $2.17 from USC, according to a report from the LA Times in 2016.
A number of intriguing incentives are included in the Ole Miss contract as well, highlighted by a $1 million bonus for winning the national title. Starting with the 5th win of the season, Lane will also get an additional $150k for each win, and can aslo earn a nice chunk of change for regular-season wins against Power 5 non-SEC programs ($100k per win).
He’ll have a salary pool of $5.3 million for his ten on-field assistant coaches, and an additional $2.2 million for his support staff that will include five strength and conditioning coaches and folks in football operations, analysts, video, recruiting, and player personnel.
According to the USA Today Coaching Salary database for assistants, Matt Luke got just over $5 million for his staff last season.
