Lane Kiffin is bringing in his younger brother, Chris, as the Rebels’ new co-defensive coordinator.

Chris served as the defensive line coach for the Cleveland Browns during the 2021 season, where he helped lead the unit to the ninth-most sacks (43) in the NFL.

This won’t be Chris’ first stint in Oxford as he was the defensive line coach and defensive recruiting coordinator for Ole Miss from 2012-2016 before joining Lane at Florida Atlantic for the 2017 season. That year, the Owls went 11-3 and won the Conference USA championship.

Chris will lead the Ole Miss defense alongside co-defensive coordinator Chris Partridge. In 2021, the Rebels allowed 24.7 points per game and 5.5 yards per play.

The news was first reported by Bruce Feldman of The Athletic.
